Community Based Support Tasmania

Assistance With My NDIS Plan


NDIS Assistance In Tasmania

If you already have an NDIS plan, you are on the right page. If you don’t have a plan yet but would like information about the NDIS, click here.


Community Based Support (CBS) is a proud and enthusiastic authorised provider of support services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme. We have been involved in providing support to NDIS participants since the start of the trial in Tasmania in 2013.


CBS has experience in the NDIS in Tasmania and is completely ready to support people in the NDIS over the coming years and, in fact, for the rest of their lives. Contact our Disability Support Services team to talk to us about how we can support you, or you can download our brochure here.


Currently, we provide the following types of support under the NDIS:

  • Assistance with Self-Care Activities
  • Assistance to access community, social and recreational activities
  • Individual Skills Development
  • Group Based Activities in a Centre
  • Home modification
  • Household Tasks

What does it cost?

When you create your NDIS plan, all costs associated with that plan are usually taken care of by the NDIS. This is part of the reason why it is so important to be thorough in the planning stage. The only costs that may be incurred are for travel using your support workers vehicle.


If your support worker needs to use their vehicle during a visit, you will be charged travel costs of 83c a km. This will be discussed with you when we complete your NDIS Service Agreement.

The CBS difference!

No matter where you go, people will tell you that they are the best choice for service delivery. At CBS, we believe that the only way to know why people choose CBS over any other organisation, is to ask them.


Some of the reasons people have said that they choose CBS over any other organisation include:

  • “…they are caring, obliging, understanding and reliable.”
  • “…they give me very good treatment.”


In addition to this, we think some of things that make our Disability Support Services superior to others are:


  • Our support staff

CBS has over 200 qualified support workers across Tasmania. We work with you to find the most suitable staff member to assist you. CBS employs Tasmanians who understand the needs of the community in which they live and work. Talk to us about whether we have suitable staff for the support you need.


  • Self Select Workers

CBS also offer the option of hiring a Self Select worker to work just with you – this may be someone you know who we hire to work with you. Self Select workers still need to attend training and undertake checks every year, but may not have the full qualification we require to work with other clients. There are some rules with this, but if you have someone in mind, or if you want to know more about this, let us know  and we can talk to you about it.
