Setting goals with your NDIS Plan is an important step in making the most of your NDIS funding and achieving the outcomes that matter most to you.
Goals and Outcomes:
The first step in setting goals with your NDIS plan is to understand the different types of goals that you can set. These can include things like improving your independence, increasing your social connections, or gaining new skills.
Have a look at your life currently in terms of these areas:
Personal choice and control
Health and wellbeing
Social and community participation, and
How do you feel about each area?
Once you have a clear understanding of the types of goals that are available to you, it's important to think about what specific outcomes you would like to achieve. This might include things like learning how to cook a certain meal, joining a local sports team, or finding a job that you enjoy.

How to Achieve Them:
Next, you'll need to think about the specific actions and support that will be needed to achieve your goals. For example, if your goal is to learn how to cook a certain meal, you may need support from a cooking teacher or a meal delivery service.
It's also important to consider how your goals align with your NDIS plan, and to make sure that you are using your funding in the most effective way possible. This might involve working with a support coordinator or other professional to ensure that your plan is tailored to your specific needs.
The most important thing to remember? No goal is too small or insignificant if it makes you happy.
