Capacity &

Capacity Building supports are an important category of services under the NDIS approach. They are services that help people develop the skills they need to lead happy, independent lives.

Capacity Building is different from Core supports in that the funds are used to support goals that specifically build on your long-term independence. They are usually provided in addition to Core supports, which ensures that you can comfortably perform normal daily tasks.

For example, a Core support might be using funds for delivery of meals on a weekly basis, whereas a Capacity Building support will provide you with the knowledge, skills and education to prepare healthy meals yourself.

With so many goal categories and supports to choose from, it can be hard to decide exactly where you want to focus your efforts. That’s why it’s important to prioritise your needs early in your plan application or review, as your funding will be allocated between 9 different categories that dictate specifically how you use your funds. It is also why it is important to work with the right support network in the sector to ensure you are looked after in this regard.
