Launch of the new Workforce Innovation: Self Managed Supports website

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.
