Transportation and Travel
An NDIS participant will most likely be able to access funding through the NDIS for transportation and travel assistance if you cannot access public transport without considerable difficulty due to your disability.
NDIS can fund you to pay a Provider to transport you to an activity that isn’t a support; for example travel to and from appointments with you OT, physio or GP, or work.
At Focused Wellbeing Services, we want to assist you with your transportation needs, whether it is travelling by the public transport or in one of our support workers’ cars.

- Attend community events, groups activities, or clubs
