NDIS helps Australians with disabilities spend more time with family and friends, gain access to new skills, and lead an improved quality of life. Whether you are an independent participant or someone who wants to understand how NDIS works, you need to stay informed about the price of services and limits for claims.
Having a copy of the NDIS Support Catalogue is necessary to get these details and more. Now, read through this article to get a proper understanding of this catalogue.
What Is the NDIS Support Catalogue?
The Support Catalogue is an important document for all NDIS stakeholders. They can gather policy information and get proper guidance regarding state-specific prices, support categories, claimable limits and their descriptions. Through this catalogue, NDIS stakeholders can easily identify any service that has become deactivated. The document is updated every financial year.
It is recommendable for all NDIS stakeholders to stay updated with the Support Catalogue. They can take advantage of the right kind of support services. There exist different kinds of supports and often the catalogue is amended. For this reason, NDIS participants should consult a Plan Manager, who can help them choose the right options.

- Capacity Building: NDIS participants can use capacity-building support to build up their independence and skills.

NDIS Price Guide
When dealing with NDIS Support Catalogue, you should have a proper understanding of the NDIS Price Guide as well. This allows all NDIS participants and disability support workers to have a thorough understanding of the functioning of NDIS supports and services.
This price guide often acts as the reference point for providers. Participants also get the opportunity to gain a proper understanding of their spending patterns.
