“Self-managing means my daughter decides what to do with her life and chooses who supports her in that, and they are accountable to her.”

Would you like to learn more about how you can self manage an NDIS plan to get the good things in life?

Self managing is one of the most powerful ways to support a positive vision and an inclusive life. Self management can mean more flexibility, choice and control over what a person with disability does with their life and who supports them to do it.

But… self managing an NDIS Package can feel like a lot of work. How can you navigate this to best suit your life or the person with disability?

Find out how you might get the most of self managing, what your next steps could be and meet other families.

Join our free, Self Management Peer Network group that meets regularly, starting February 2022. The group will be facilitated by an experienced family leader.

The first meeting dates are on a Wednesday at 1pm-2.30pm every two weeks: 9 February, 23 February, 9 March, 23 March and 6 April with the possibility of extension after consultation with the group and facilitator.

Register your interest in taking part. There are limited places available, so we strongly encourage you to register ASAP to secure your spot!
