Assistance with Daily Life NDIS

If you’re eligible for assistance with daily life NDIS funding, you may be able to access supports that help you with daily personal activities or household tasks.  The team at Disability Plan Services can connect you with reliable providers to deliver the supports you need.  

We all need a helping hand from time to time. Having the right supports in place allows us to concentrate on the bigger picture things in life – such as our hopes, goals, and dreams. When you are approved for assistance with daily life NDIS funding, you might be eligible to receive help completing your daily tasks to build your overall independence and life skills.   


In this blog, we’ll break down what budget you’ll find assistance with daily life in NDIS plans, what the funding can be used for, and why this type of support is so important.  


What is assistance with daily life NDIS funding? 


NDIS funding is as unique as the person receiving it, and varies based on your needs, wants and goals. However, if you have funding for assistance with daily life in your plan, you may be able to receive funding for  


  • Assistance with day-to-day essential tasks, including bathing, dressing, preparing meals, medication assistance, cleaning, gardening, and shopping.  
  • Assistance with purchasing essential everyday items, such as incontinence products.   
  • Support to help you participate in social or recreational activities.  


Eligibility for assistance with daily life NDIS funding  


You are eligible to access this kind of support if you have ‘Assistance with Daily Life’ funded under your Core Support budget. You can check whether you already have funding by searching for ‘Assistance with Daily Life’ in your plan, or ‘Daily Activities’ in your myplace portal. A good quality plan manager, such as Disability Plan Services, will be able to let you know if you’re eligible for this funding, whether you already have it in your plan, and how much funding you’ve received for it. 



How can a support coordinator help you get the most out of this funding?

Why is this support important?  


This type of individual assist NDIS support is not only vital for keeping you healthy, happy, and safe, but it can free up a lot of your personal time so you can concentrate on some of your longer-term goals – whether that is studying at university or TAFE, finding or skilling up for a job, or eventually becoming more independent and managing your own finances.
