The Australian Federal Government has created the NDIS as a new way of supporting people with disabilities. Broadly the aim is to empower People With Disabilities (PWD) to be more in control of the products and services that they require to live their lives. The scheme is being rolled out across Australia between 2016 and 2019 and you can find detailed information on the NDIS website. This article assumes the you are familiar with scheme in general terms.
Brolly Sheets is a registered NDIS provider. This means that we can provide our range of waterproof protection for bedding, furniture and clothing to participants in the scheme.
The short version is that ordering Brolly Sheets products is a easy ABC!
Each participant (the term used to describe PWD in the scheme) will have a plan that describes goals or outcomes from the plan and the necessary supports required to reach those goals. For some participants management of a continence need will be included as part of their plan. Your plan will then contain funding to purchase the services, aids and equipment which have been assessed as required, from the providers (the term used to describe companies and people that work with participants) of your choice.
The Brolly Sheets range of products are currently being used by people for a range of reasons, for example; Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum, Spinal Injuries, Brain Injuries, Motor Neurone disease Bladder and Bowel cancers.
Funding is allocated by NDIS on an annual basis. For single use products like catheters, leg sheaths, pads and diapers the NDIS Price Guide contains standardised packages. Brolly Sheets products are not single use and generally fall under the category of “non-body-worn washable products for absorbing urine and faeces”.
