Making the most of the NDIS

Community Bridging Services (CBS) Inc. is an NDIS registered provider of supports.

Our team at CBS Inc. can offer you practical advice on how to make the most of your NDIS plan. As an NDIS provider, we will work with you to tailor our supports to meet your goals.

We provide supports in a number of ways to ensure they are individualized. This includes any of the following (or a combination):

  • one-to-one supports – matching you with a Support Worker that you can connect with.
  • online – helping to reach people where they live. This can really help people who need some extra support before joining a group.
  • group activities – where you can enjoy recreational activities and learn with people you can feel comfortable with

At CBS Inc., we pride ourselves on delivering outstanding person-centred services.

The main point of difference with CBS Inc. is the high staff to participant ratio, where we strive to meet all of your individual needs.

There have been two main changes, effective 25/3/20.

  • 10% COVID-19 price increase on some support items, including Assistance with Social and Community Participation.

This temporary price increase is not automatically adjusted to NDIS Plans.  If you require extra funding to cover the increase, please call the NDIA on 1800 800 110 to have a plan review.  We can assist with providing a revised quote.

  • Changes to cancellation rules

Participants are required to provide 10 business days’ notice for a cancellation, to avoid paying a cancellation fee.  Previously this was only two days’ notice.

Furthermore, from 30/3/20, the cancellation fee is 100% (previously 90%).

The NDIA has advised that any unused funding due to COVID-19 will not impact any future NDIS plans, i.e. funding will not be reduced.
