What is NDIS Capacity Building?

NDIS Capacity

Capacity Building Supports are designed to help build skills and independence in your daily life, and to help you pursue your goals. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will assess your needs, and your short and long-term goals during a planning meeting to help identify which Capacity Building Supports might need to be funded. It’s important to know that you will not necessarily be funded for all the Capacity Building Supports categories.

NDIS Capacity Building Support Categories

  1. Support Coordination is a fixed amount of funding that can be used to engage a Support Coordinator who can help you to connect with, and implement your plan.
  2. Improved Living Arrangements (or ‘CB Home Living’) help you to find and maintain appropriate accommodation for your needs.
  3. Increased Social and Community Participation (or ‘CB Social Community and Civic Participation) helps you with the development and training of life skills to encourage your participation in your community and with social and recreational activities.
  4. Finding and Keeping a Job (or ‘CB Employment’) helps you to find and maintain employment. This funding can be used for employment-related support, training, and assessments.
  5. Improved Relationships (or ‘CB Relationships’) help you to develop positive behavioral strategies to better your interactions with people in your life and community.
  6. Improved Health and Wellbeing (or ‘CB Health and Wellbeing’) helps you to manage the impact of your disability through exercise and diet advice. It’s important to know that gym membership is not included in your funding.
  7. Improved Learning (or ‘CB Lifelong Learning’) provides training and advice to help you move from school into higher education like university.
  8. Improved Choices (or CB Choice and Control) helps you to manage your plan funding with the help of a Plan Manager
  9. Improved Daily Living (or CB Daily Activity) helps to build your capacity to engage within your community or to be more independent at home by providing assessment, training, or therapy to help increase your skills.

Unlike Core Supports, Capacity Building Supports are not flexible.  They are in addition to Core Supports, which ensure you are able to perform daily living tasks.

Using nutrition as an example, a Core Support might be having your daily meals prepared and delivered to you, whereas Capacity Building support will provide you with the skills and education to prepare nutritionally-balanced meals yourself. So, if one of your goals is to be more active in your community, you might receive Capacity Building support in the form of learning skills to manage your behavior, or having a support worker attend social activities with you until you are confident and have the skills to attend on your own.
