Everything you need to know about how Bedford is helping our community at this time.

Funding in your NDIS Plan will be broken down into three support purposes:

  • Core
  • Capital
  • Capacity Building

You will receive reasonable and necessary funding under the relevant budget depending on your support needs.

Core Supports

Funding for Core Supports is provided as a single lump sum which can be used flexibly across the following four support categories:

  • Assistance with Daily Life
  • Assistance with Social, Community and Civic Participation
  • Consumables
  • Transport

Bedford can assist with the development of skills to help you live as independently as possible. We can also help you plan and learn day-to-day tasks such as budgeting, shopping, using public transport and personal care.

In partnership with Unity Housing, Bedford can provide the support to access and live independently and in community-based accommodation. We can also offer group-based and individual counseling to build resilience, make independent decisions and use positive behaviours to participate in the community. Bedford will help you make informed decisions about your daily life and assist you to get the most out of your day-to-day activities and relationships.

While we don't provide transport or consumables support directly, we can make recommendations about accessing these supports and guidance about what can be funded in an NDIS plan.
