Supporting you through the NDIS planning process

If you’d like support through the NDIS planning process, our team can help.

We’ll sit down with you and together, we’ll develop a plan that’s centred around the most important person in the process – you.  It will include things like your likes and dislikes, your passions and goals and is designed to assist you in accessing the NDIS support you need to live the life you choose.

Preparing for a plan review

If Uniting is delivering support through your NDIS plan, please get in touch with us at least 8 weeks prior to your NDIS plan review date so we can help you prepare and support you to get the best outcome from your plan review.

This might include things like supporting you to identify and gather the evidence you need to successfully apply for more funding.

If you’ve got questions about this process, please get in touch.
