Persons under the National Disability insurance scheme (NDIS) require support in many ways for them to carry on with their day-to-day activities. As such, the NDIS cleaning scheme comes in handy to help members with their cleaning needs.

While the NDIS funds offer support for the disabled to help them manage various aspects of their lives, they do not cater to specialist services like plumbing and electricity-related problems. In that case, you need to understand how the scheme operates to know where it can help.

Under the NDIS core policy of assistance with Daily living, cleaners must be approved by the insurance scheme. To gain approval, you must confirm with the NDIS safety and quality standards as stipulated by the NDIS Commission.This ensures members of the NDIS scheme get quality cleaning services. In this article, we highlight how you can get a cleaner under the NDIS insurance program.

You must subscribe to the NDIS Cleaning program

To get funding for your routine cleaning, you must have subscribed under home maintenance and cleaning. In that case, if you have funds set aside for this scheme, then you can procure an NDIS cleaning service to help you out at home.

How to get an NDIS compliant Cleaner

Members who subscribe to the NDIS support insurance scheme are required to hire NDIS registered cleaners. All the recommended cleaners must comply with high professional standards to get approval to serve members. This ensures members under the scheme get quality services. Alternatively, if you have set aside other funds, you can choose to hire a cleaner of your choice.

Can I hire a non-NDIS Clear?

You can opt to hire a non NDIS approved cleaner. This is also a perfect alternative in case you want to procure services of a cleaner that is not NDIS compliant.

However, to hire a non NDIS compliant cleaner, you can follow the following process.

Submit an agreement

This is typically documentation presenting details about how the cleaning services will be delivered

Price agreement

Before signing an agreement, you need to agree on the hourly amount that will be offered to the cleaner. Generally, the amount must confirm with the rating system set up by NDIS.

Unfortunately, in case you incur extra costs in pricing, you may either pay from your pocket or cleaners may have to include on the hourly rate.

Collaborating with NDIS approved cleaners

Instead of struggling to hire cleaners, you can choose to procure services of NDIS registered cleaners. This saves you from hiring unprofessional cleaners that may not offer quality cleaning services. All NDIS certified cleaners meet high safety and quality standards set by NDIS.

Therefore you are guaranteed better services than you’d have got elsewhere. However, you still have the option of hiring an unregistered cleaner as long as you follow the right procedure.

Final Thoughts

While the National Disability insurance scheme (NDIS) supports the disabled in many ways, you need to understand what it covers to enjoy its real benefits. Whether you want to hire an NDIS registered cleaner or a non-registered cleaner, you are free to do so as long as you follow the set guidelines.
