Living Services

Providing places for people who have a disability to live in the community – houses and units, shared or otherwise, with people there to assist with daily living based on person-centred support arrangements. We provide drop-in style support for those in their own home who need or want very specific types of assistance. Everything we do is planned around personal wants and needs. All accommodation is funded by the residents through their NDIS funding packages. We are currently considering setting up supports for new groups of people who are choosing to live together in the community but who need Allevia’s support.

Support Coordination

Supporting people with a disability to locate and engage with the support services they need in the community.

Applying for the NDIS can be a confusing and often daunting process. The Support Coordinators at Allevia can assist you with your application.
Eligibility
To see if you are eligible to ‘apply’ to the NDIS for support, call the NDIA on 1800 800 110 or click here (https://www.ndis.gov.au/ndis-access-checklist.html ).
You may be deemed ‘eligible’ for the NDIS if you meet certain requirements : click here (https://www.ndis.gov.au/people-disability/access-requirements.html ) to see what those requirements are.

The Access Process

If you are eligible, you will need to call the NDIA on 1800 800 110 and ask for an Access Request Form. You will most likely need assistance from your GP or medical specialists to get copies of assessments, health reports, or other forms of evidence to support your application. Once you have your Access Request Form you only have 21 days to return it to the NDIA. Allevia can advise you on this.

The Next Step

Once the NDIA have received and processed your Access request Form, they will contact you, either by letter which will tell you what they have decided, by phone to ask for more information, or a Local Area Coordinator will contact you to set up an initial planning meeting. While you wait, start getting ready for the planning meeting by writing down what supports you need and want. Allevia can help you get ready for the meeting.
