Supported employment changes - 10 things you need to know

supported employment changes
30 June 2020

The NDIS is creating a new way of funding people in supported employment.

Changes are designed to help you purchase supports to achieve your employment goals.

Here are the 10 things you need to know:

  1. Funding will now be called “Supports in Employment” not “Assistance in Specialised Supported Employment.”

 

  2. Funding will now be in the Core budget not the Capacity Building.

 

  3. Supports in employment will be flexible and can be used how and where you want.

 

  4. Changes are effective 1 July 2020.

 

  5. Your funding changes will happen at your next NDIS plan review. Your existing funding arrangements remain in place until your next NDIS plan review.

 

  6. You have time to think about your employment goals and what supports you may need to achieve them.

 

  7. Funded supports will be individualised 'on-the-job' supports. Supported employment has been underfunded, resulting in supports being generic and mainly offered in groups.

 

  8. Supports in employment may be provided as one-to-one support depending on your employment goals.

 

  9. Endeavour Foundation believes in supported employment and is committed to help you achieve your current and future employment goals.

 

  10. Endeavour Foundation will help you prepare for the next planning meeting, so you have the right information to get the right amount of money you need in your plan.

Disability diagnosis: why it’s so important to get it right

Getting a correct disability diagnosis can take a lot of time, money and paperwork, but it is one of the best things you can do to make the most of your NDIS plan. Your disability support providers can only provide supports that you have funding for. If a diagnosis isn’t quite right, this can sometimes mean that people miss out on the services they need.

It’s been a stressful year. Not only are we grappling with a global health crisis, but experts are warning of a potential mental health crisis too.
