    Frequently Asked Questions

    NDIS Capacity Building encompasses a range of support services aimed at enhancing the skills, independence, and inclusion of individuals with disabilities. It focuses on empowering participants to achieve their goals and participate fully in their communities. Examples include skill development programs, social participation initiatives, and support coordination services.

    Eligibility for NDIS Capacity Building supports is determined based on the participant's eligibility for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This includes individuals with disabilities, their families, and carers. To access these supports, individuals must go through the NDIS application process and have their eligibility assessed.

    NDIS Capacity Building funds various activities tailored to the individual needs and goals of participants. These activities may include skill-building workshops, social inclusion programs, capacity-building training, and support coordination services. The aim is to empower participants to achieve greater independence and participation in their communities.

    To access NDIS Capacity Building supports, individuals must first become participants in the NDIS. This involves submitting an access request and undergoing eligibility assessment. Once approved, participants can work with their NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to develop a plan that includes capacity building supports tailored to their needs and goals.

    The duration of NDIS Capacity Building supports varies depending on individual needs and goals outlined in the participant's NDIS plan. These supports are reviewed regularly to ensure they continue to meet the participant's evolving needs. Participants can request plan reviews or adjustments if their circumstances change.

    Yes, one of the key principles of the NDIS is participant choice and control. Participants have the opportunity to identify their own goals and objectives for capacity building activities, with support from their NDIS planner or LAC. This ensures that supports are tailored to the participant's individual preferences and aspirations.

    NDIS Capacity Building supports are available across Melbourne and Victoria, ensuring accessibility for participants in various geographical regions. ADEC operates in multiple locations to provide support to ethnic communities throughout the region. However, specific service availability may vary depending on location and demand.
