Here, we share our insights and tips on what you should keep in mind when looking for a good support provider and the importance of your support team being NDIS registered. 

What is an NDIS Provider?

An NDIS approved service provider is an individual or company that offers support services to people with disability through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). When searching for providers, ensure you look for an NDIS registered provider, as they are more closely monitored to ensure they meet strict safety and quality standards. 

Qualities to Look for in a Support Provider

A quality support provider offers customised individual care, with tailored plans designed to suit your unique needs. A person-centred approach also means a provider is compassionate, thoughtful, understanding, empathetic and welcoming of all religions and cultures. Of course, professionalism is also essential, which is something you can rely on with an NDIS registered provider.

Types of NDIS Providers

What is an NDIS provider and how can they meet your needs? The answer to this varies from person to person, based on your goals and specific requirements. Different types of NDIS providers offer services like:

Knowing the type of support services you’re looking for will help you find the right provider for you. If, for example, you need assistance with attending social events, your support worker should have an appropriate vehicle to facilitate this.

Evaluating Potential Providers

  • Accreditation and Certification: NDIS providers have a significant impact on your daily activities and goals, so look for well-trained and qualified staff. Check for certifications and accreditations, from NDIS registration and support experience to qualifications like nursing.
  • Client Testimonials and Reviews: Check reviews and testimonials from other NDIS participants who have used their services. This can provide valuable insights into the quality of services, customer support, and the quality of experience offered when trying to find an NDIS provider that meets your needs.
  • Personal Visits and Consultations: In-person care meetings elevate the quality of your care, as this is when your support worker creates your individualised assessment reports. Narrow your options to local companies to ensure you have access to support services when you need them.

Get the most out of your NDIS plan by checking what services or products are funded in your plan. The NDIS funds a range of services, but not everything is covered. Check with your support team to find out which services are funded and the level of funding available to you.
