NDIS Journey

Access NDIS support with GPSO

GPSO has been supporting NDIS Participants since July 2017 when the scheme was first introduced in the Riverina. GPSO is a registered NDIS provider for a variety of services and is committed to providing individualised supports to meet your needs and goals.

We understand there is a lot to know and learn about the NDIS, especially when you are working towards your first plan. To help you get started we have listed the main steps on the NDIS pathway.

Step 1

Applying for the NDIS

The first step is to call the NDIA on 1800 800 110 to ask for an Access Request form, which includes questions to confirm your identity, see if you meet the NDIS access requirements and consent. If you need help filling in the form, you can contact your local NDIA office.

Send your completed Access Request form to the NDIA for assessment. Once approved you will receive a letter confirming the outcome of your application. If successful, your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) will contact you to arrange an NDIS planning meeting.

Step 2

Creating your NDIS Plan

You will be invited to an NDIS planning meeting, where you will meet with your LAC to develop a plan most suited to your needs and goals.

After the meeting, the LAC submits the plan to the NDIA to review. Once approved, your LAC will share the plan with you in person or send a paper copy to your preferred address. You can also access your approved plan via the myplace portal.

Step 3

Implementing your NDIS plan

Once you have an NDIS plan, it is important you connect to appropriate services to ensure your needs and goals are met. Support Coordination can assist you to implement your plan and connect to service providers.

Step 4

Reviewing your NDIS plan

Before your NDIS plan is due for expiry, the NDIS will contact you to arrange a review. This involves discussing any changes that may have occurred since the last meeting with your LAC and a review of the funds you have spent.

You are welcome to bring a family member, carer or support person to your NDIS review meeting. It is very beneficial to bring along any allied health reports and supporting documentation that illustrates the services you will need in your next plan.
