What are NDIS consumables
NDIS consumables are daily items required to help manage personal disability related needs. These items fall into the NDIS core support category.
The NDIS consumables budget is flexible and can include a range of products that help you with your daily life and activities. If you find that your everyday activities and goals change, you may reduce or increase the amount of support you receive for consumables and swap to support for other categories such as assistance with your daily life, assistance to participate in social and community activities or for transport.
