This funding must meet the NDIS’ reasonable and necessary criteria.
What is Employment Support?
Employment Support can help build your skills and provide short-term support. You can use it to help you understand the work you are interested in, improve your skills, handle complex barriers and create a career plan.

This funding is tailored to support NDIS participants who are less self-sufficient, have difficulty managing their behaviours, or require ongoing support at work.

It could include:
