C19 - Individualised Funding

If you have a disability you may be receiving Individualised Funding or you may be eligible for it. This is an area of significant change and innovation.

There are organisations contracted by the Ministry of Health to support people using Individualised Funding.

What do I need in order to take this option?

You must be able to manage the range of services that you need, or have someone you trust who agrees to manage the services for you.

There are eligibility requirements, so check with your local Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) service.

Could this option limit my future choices?

Possibly. The impact of Individualised Funding on your housing and future housing opportunities needs to be discussed with your support workers or the Ministry of Health.

For more information

Talk to your local Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) service.
