Connecting you with the services you need
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) changes the way in which disability services are delivered within Australia. The NDIS enables individuals to reach their goals, participate within the community and increase independence.
What is NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an innovative way to provide support to individuals with disability and their families. The unique funding scheme is focused on helping people have choice and control in all decision making. With the NDIS, individuals can access:
- Available mainstream support services
- Informal support arrangements
- Support services within your community
- Funded support
- Other services you might not find easily on your own

NDIA have introduced the TTP in the Price Guide for 2020 – 21. This replaced the Temporary Support for Overheads.
From 1st July 2020, providers of attendant care and community centre-based activities can charge a higher support price limit. This is through the TTP.
Simba Support Services adhere to the TTP requirement set out by the NDIA. This includes personal activities, group and center-based activities, high intensity daily personal activities, participation in community, social and civic activities, etc..
How does the TTP Work?
Under the support item a loading of 7.5 has been added. This loading will reduce by 1.5% each year.
Every support item that the TTP applies to (attendant care and community access) has tow support items and tow price limits:
- The Non-TTP items should be used by providers who are not compliant with the TTP conditions.
- The TTP items should be used by providers who are compliant with the TTP conditions.
