Accessing the NDIS and preparing your plan

We know that the NDIS can seem complex. Anglicare’s professional, experienced team is here to support you - even before you have a plan. We can assist you to:

  • Test your eligibility for the NDIS

  • Prepare for the annual review process once you have a plan so that your support remains right for you
  • Ask for a plan review if your support needs change.

Anglicare has been working with people seeking to access the NDIS and people preparing to develop an NDIS plan since the start of the scheme. Our experienced staff can work with you to get the best possible NDIS plan for you.

Planned time away from your usual support network

Anglicare can provide a range of services for people living with disability to enable their carers to take planned time away knowing that their family member or friend is supported by experienced and well-trained staff.

At Anglicare, we have experienced staff to support people with all kinds of disability, including those with complex needs.

How we provide this support will depend on your individual needs. Anglicare can provide a range of options, which may include support to participate in community activities, support in your home, or support in one of our accommodation options. We can provide support for just a few hours or 24-hour support if needed.


Social and Community Participation
