Author: Kristina Magathova Date Posted:21 January 2020
The health, well-being and safety of our community should never be taken lightly. Access to quality and affordable assistive technology equipment and services is our main focus. As an NDIS Provider, we can process service bookings through our NDIS portal. We have been working with NDIS right from its inception in 2014 providing and helping people who are in need of assistance to live a free life.
Active Mobility Systems provides mobility solutions that can assist users to take care of themselves.
Each participant receives their own NDIS Plan which is customized to suit and support all their needs.
There are 3 types of support budgets that may be funded in participant’s NDIS Plan:
Core Support Budget
Capacity Building Support Budget
Capital Support Budget
1. Core Support Budget
The Core Support Budget helps participants with daily activities that enables them to work towards their goal. Core Support Budget is the most flexible budget, participant can use funding across any of the support categories (Assistance With Daily Life, Transport, Consumables, Assistance with Social and community participation).
2. Capacity Building Supports Budget
The Capacity Building Support Budget help build participant’s independence and skills to help them reach their long-term goals. This budget cannot be moved. And the funds can only be used to purchase approved supports that is within that Capacity Building Category (Support coordination, Improved Living Arrangment, Increased Social & Community Participations, Finding and Keeping a Job, Improved Relationship, Improved Health and Wellbeing, Improved Learning, Improved Life Choices, Improved Daily Living).
3. Capital Support Budget
The Capital Support Budget includes higher-cost pieces of Assistive Technology (AT), equipment, home or vehicle modification and funding for one-off purchases that the participant may need. The funds from Capital Supports Budget can only be used to pay for specific purposes and cannot be used to pay for anything else. The Capital Support budget has two categories (Assistive Technology and Home Modification).
