About Leap in! and the Leap in! Service.

Leap in! is a multi-party information sharing platform designed to capture the information required for a NDIS planning or review meeting and to facilitate a connected and optimised experience between Members and supports/service providers. Based on the information you provide, Leap in! may also present information relating to third party products or services.

The Plan Management section of the Service is designed to help you manage your NDIS budget and its outcomes including the choice and control which comes with a visibility of the status of your specific funding categories, spending and commitment of funding to various support providers and your service agreements with them (where relevant) for the purpose of managing your finances to achieve your goals as part of your NDIS plan.

To do this, the Service consolidates and tracks your NDIS funding categories, providers, service agreements and financial information.

The Service is provided by Leap in! without charge (it is free) for NDIS plan meeting pre-planning and includes a Plan Management section which is available to Members when they request to access Leap in! intermediary services. This service is also free for Members as, when agreed with the NDIS, the Agency will include extra funds in the Member’s plan to cover the cost of a plan manager.

The Leap in! Service is not intended to provide legal, tax or financial advice. Leap in! does not hold any Financial Services Licences and cannot give financial advice. Any information provided to you by us is general information and relates specifically to your NDIS plan funds.

The Service will evolve over time based on user feedback and we may modify or enhance the Service. We will provide you with reasonable notice of these changes if they have a significant effect on your usage of the Service.

In the Service, any currency references are references to Australian dollars unless otherwise specified.
