Access to important supports during COVID-19

Adjusting to the ever-changing rules and restrictions in a pandemic is hard, and can take a huge mental toll on wellbeing.

That’s why we’re sharing this quick guide on where participants and their carers can access important supports to maximise their NDIS plan during COVID-19.

This guide contains links to supports like grocery shopping, household tasks, travel and exercise that can be disrupted and add mental load in times of isolation.

Thankfully, there are a lot of incredible organisations in the market that can provide support during COVID-19 and offer essential services for participants.

If your supports have been disrupted, or if you are looking for new support workers or backup coverage, these businesses are ready to assist (via the NDIS):

Additional support

It’s completely normal to feel exhausted and stressed during COVID-19, particularly if your schedule, routine or treatment is impacted, or if someone you care for has been affected.

To assist, the Australian Government has created a mental health website called ‘Head to Health’ that contains information and guidance on taking care of your mental and wellbeing in isolation.

If you are looking to improve your mental health or provide additional support for someone you care for, Head to Health is a great place to start and contains mental health resources from a range of providers.

Support for participants not on the NDIS

If you or someone you care for needs support and is not currently on the NDIS, there are a range of online resources available on the Department of Health website.

If you require support please contact:

Kids Helpline 1800 551 800
