The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) may support you with transport relating accessing your local community.
What type of support is available for transport?
The NDIS has three levels of support for transport depending on your activity. For it to funded it needs to be linked to an outcome you have identified in your plan.
The NDIS will provide up to $1,606 per year if you are not working, studying or attending day programs but are seeking to get into the community more.
The NDIS will provide up to $2,472 per year for participants who are currently working or studying part-time (up to 15 hours per week), participating in day programs and for other social, recreational, or leisure activities.
The NDIS will provide up to $3,456 per year if you are currently working, looking for work, or studying, at least 15 hours per week, and are unable to use public transport because of your disability.
