Depending on your package and type of management, this conference may be able to be claimed through the NDIS as it is capacity building for parents, carers, siblings and for people with Down syndrome. Some delegates may be able to claim the invoice for this conference once paid. See information below-
There needs to be funding in NDIS plan to claim for workshops/conference - Parent Training. This needs to align with the participant goals on the current plan. The Plan Manager should be contacted if the NDIS plan is plan managed.
To book a ticket to attend workshop/ conference-
- Click on Purchase the NDIS ticket (you won't need to pay at this point)
- The ticket amount will need to be entered to correspond to the ticket type that is required.
- Select 'invoice' at the checkout.
- You will receive an email from us asking you to fill out a service agreement and return to DSNSW.
- After the event you will receive an invoice from DSNSW. We cannot invoice before an event as you cannot pre-pay for a service/workshop with NDIS funds.
- You can then claim the cost from NDIS and then pay directly to DSNSW if self-managed or plan manager would pay directly to DSNSW if NDIA managed.
Note: It's important that you return the service agreement to us, otherwise you will be charged for an out of pocket cost.
If the service agreement is returned and the participant is invoiced and there is no funding allocated or insufficient funding, the expense to attend will need to be paid by the attendee as 'out of pocket' direct to Down Syndrome NSW.
