Activity Costs

Activity costs are additional costs incurred as a result of providing a particular activity, these include; entrance fees, activity-specific equipment and resources, and activity specific expertise. This short presentation will detail when and how a provider can charge an activity cost under the NDIS.

Support Coordination

This workshop aims at informing both registered NDIS Support Coordinators and other disability support providers about what to expect when working with a participant who has support coordination included in their plan. The extended session will explore the roles and responsibilities of a Support Coordinator, focusing on managing requests for service and working with other supports, navigating conflicts of interest, report writing and billable hours. Time will also be allocated for questions from the audience.
