NDIS explained


The NDIS has replaced the old system of ‘block’ funding where the NSW Government directly funded organisations to provide support. Under the NDIS, eligible people are now assessed and allocated their own funding based on their needs. Each person can now exercise choice and control over the services and supports they receive. Newcastle Temporary Care participated in a trial of the NDIS which began in July 2013. We are now fully transitioned and ready to support you along your NDIS journey.

Ability Options is a TTP Provider

From 1 July 2019, providers of attendant care and community and centre based activities have access to a higher support price limit through a Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP). The TTP assists providers with any costs associated in transitioning to the NDIS.

Ability Options is a registered TTP Provider.

The NDIA have increased existing service bookings to ensure the additional funds are available to be claimed, and do not impact the quantity of services provided to participants.

The NDIA has released an updated NDIS Price Guide and Support Catalogue 2019–20, effective 1 July 2019.
