What is self-management?

Choosing to self-manage means you will manage your NDIS funding. Your responsibilities as an NDIS self-manager include keeping records of invoices and receipts, recruiting your own support workers and writing contracts, meeting your obligations as an employer and participating in payment audits by the NDIA.

But Bespoke Lifestyles is here to help with a range of services available to help participants who choose to self-manage their funding.

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.
