Self-managing NDIS funding is a powerful way to have choice and take control over directing one’s own supports and working towards the good things in life.
However, people may be discouraged thinking that self-management is a difficult process.
Purple Orange has been working with a number of agencies around Australia to explore peoples experiences self-managing their supports.
This new website provides a chance to hear from a range of people and support workers to find out how and why they self-manage NDIS supports.
The web site provides practical information for people thinking about self-management and the various ways of employing workers. It’s also a valuable resource for people who are considering working in these arrangements.
This project is an initiative of the National Alliance of Capacity Building Organisations (NACBO), funded from the Commonwealth-funded Innovative Workforce Fund, administered by National Disability Services.
