What evidence do I need for my NDIS planning meeting?

When preparing for your planning meeting, it is helpful to understand what types of evidence you may need to put together depending on the types of supports you would like funding for.

The most common evidence includes supporting evidence forms and Carers statements, however whilst lived experience might be useful, there are there are also some supports where gathering specific evidence will give you a better chance of having these supports included in your plan.

The NDIS use this evidence to help decide if the supports meet the NDIS funding criteria.

The NDIS advises ‘We could get this information before you become a participant, during a check-in or anytime you talk to us. For other supports we might need a report, assessment or quote.’
