NDIS Self-Management

What is the NDIS?

The NDIS is the once-in-a-generation national project improving the lives of thousands of Australians living with disability. Taking a lifetime approach, the NDIS is designed to give people with disability the opportunity to build skills, participate in their community, and engage in employment. Instead of traditional state-based funding methods, the NDIS allocated individual funding so that people living with disability can choose how they access mainstream services, engage in community support, build up informal networks, and receive their necessary supports.

What are the benefits of self-managing my NDIS plan?

One of the greatest features of the NDIS is that it allows participants greater flexibility and freedom through self-managing their funding. Self-managing your NDIS funding gives you:

CONTROL over your NDIS funding

CHOICE over who you purchase support from and how that support is delivered

FLEXIBILITY to use any provider you’d like, including non-registered providers

CAPACITY to directly employ and contract staff of your choice

ABILITY to negotiate value-for-money support services

Self-managing your NDIS plan gives people with disability greater freedom and capability to live the life they choose.

How to self-manage your NDIS funding?

Self-managing your NDIS plan can be rather daunting. Your responsibilities as a self-manager include keeping records of invoices and receipts, purchasing supports and writing contracts, meeting your obligations as an employer and participating in payment audits by the NDIA.
