O'Connor, Canberra

Do you have a Self (or Plan) Managed NDIS Plan and want to know more about how to make the most of it?

Come along to an evening or morning of sharing ideas, big thinking, innovative thinking, and answering questions about Self Management with a small group (strictly limited numbers).

Led by Support Coordinator and Advocate Sam Paior from The Growing Space, you will get a chance to get some answers to those sticky questions, and learn how you might figure out what is “Reasonable and Necessary” and what those categories and budget lines really mean, as some innovative ideas to help meet your goals.

If coming to this workshop will help you or your child meet their NDIS goals, then you should be able to claim it from your Core or Capacity building or Support Coordination Self Managed funds.

We will share some hidden NDIS resources on Self Management, give you an update on how to prepare for reviews and how reviews are likely to look with the new NDIS Participant Pathway, and give you a few shortcuts on making claims easier and quicker along the way.

We’ll help you think a little outside the box on ways to meet your goals in the community, too – not just with funded NDIS supports.

Come along prepared to share parts of your plan (not the dollar numbers, unless you want), and you really MUST bring along a copy to make the most of the session. This is not a session for people who do not already have an NDIS plan. If your plan is Plan Managed, you will likely find this valuable too, as most of the flexibilities of Self Management are open to you too!

CAN I CLAIM THIS ON NDIS? If your plan is fully Self Managed, you should be able to claim this session from your Core or Capacity Building Supports, or from your Support Coordination budget (if that budget line is Self or Plan Managed – you’ll need to check carefully), assuming it is in line with your plan goals.

If your plan is plan managed, you should also be able to claim this, if you have a good plan manager – please check with your Plan Manager – this is “Assistance to Self Manage” for people with disability and “Training for Parents/Carers” for Nominees.
