The NDIA announced yesterday that they have worked with supermarket retailers to make sure NDIS participants wanting support to grocery shop, have priority access to home delivery services.
All participants will have received via SMS or email a unique home delivery access code from the NDIA which can be used to access priority home delivery services from today, Monday 6 April.
To access priority home delivery services:
- Complete your shopping online for home delivery with participating supermarket retailers.
- When prompted enter your unique priority home delivery code.
- Submit your order.
According to the NDIS website, participants and their families who are still able to shop in their usual way are encouraged to do so, taking into account the advice of the Department of Health regarding social distancing and reducing time spent outside the home for essential needs only.
Priority home delivery services provide an option for participants who are unable to continue shopping in their usual way to purchase grocery items online and have them delivered to their home.
Priority delivery means that as an NDIS participant you can receive your items home delivered, before general members of the public. Supermarkets will pick your items and prioritise the delivery of your orders.
Participating supermarkets are Woolworths, Coles, IGA and Foodland IGA, Foodworks and Harris Farm. To find out more details about priority services, you should visit the website of your selected participating supermarket, the NDIA also answers other frequently asked questions you may have on the new initiative on this page –www.ndis.gov.au/coronavirus/priority-home-delivery-services
