Find a Money Saving Scheme
While providing care to a participant with intellectual disability we learnt that he and his mother were not aware of the companion card scheme in the Northern Territory. When attending recreational activities with the family, they were both paying full cost entry fees whereas the companion card scheme enables participation in recreational activities at a comparatively lower cost with his support worker participating for free. We introduced them to this scheme and supported their application for him to receive his companion card. They were both very happy as they are now able to do more recreational activities together as they no longer have to bear the full cost.

Identify & Increase Funding
Working daily with a young male participant with schizophrenia we identified the opportunity to increase his NDIS funds and subsequently we provided a thorough report, based on our observation and experience as a registered NDIS support service provider to NDIS, in support. As a result, he received an increase for adequate funding from NDIS that has helped him better manage his mental illness more efficiently.
