How to get Improved Living Arrangements in your NDIS plan

To access NDIS Improved Living Arrangements, you will need to discuss your desire and need to improve your current living situation in your NDIS plan management meeting (or in your annual plan review meeting).

It is important that you describe in detail how your living arrangement could be improved, and what challenges you face in your current living situation so that your LAC or Support Coordinator can understand the type of support you may need. It is also recommended that you gather evidence from your GP detailing your disability and the kinds of support you require within your home in order to live comfortably and ensure quality of life.
