Guide to moving with NDIS

Planning an NDIS supported move

Navigating the fundamentals of relocating with NDIS support

Moving house with NDIS involves several key steps to ensure a smooth transition for individuals supported by the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Firstly, it’s essential to communicate with NDIS providers and coordinate any necessary support services for the move. This may include assistance with packing, transportation, and unpacking at the new location. It’s also important to assess the specific needs of the individual and ensure that the new home meets their accessibility requirements. Throughout the process, clear communication, careful planning, and collaboration with NDIS providers are crucial to address any challenges and ensure a successful relocation.

Interact with your NDIS planner

To begin, seek assistance and guidance from your NDIS planner. There are various ways to connect with them, including:

  • Contacting them by phone at 1800 800 1100 (8 am-8 pm)
  • Accessing the myplace participant portal using your myGov sign-in details
  • Sending an email to enquiries@ndis.gov.au or through online webchat

If you believe you meet the eligibility criteria for the NDIS, you’ll need to download and complete an Access Request Form (ARF) along with a Supporting Evidence Form (SEF). It’s crucial to collaborate with your GP or specialist medical professionals to gather all necessary information.

Additionally, consider following NDIS on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, and X (formerly Twitter). Regular updates about NDIS services are posted here.

NDIS relies on trusted partners to deliver the services it can fund. It’s advisable to discuss your requirements with your NDIS planner, who can then identify the most suitable provider to assist you.
