The following videos were made for the Innovative Workforce Fund's self managed supports website, which provides practical information about self-managing your (or your family member’s) supports under a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan. Its focus is on people living with disability who self-manage and people who want to work for them.
Self-management is an arrangement where participants receive all or part of their NDIS funding and they manage the payments for supports. Participants have choice and control over who provides their supports and can choose workers to assist them experience their lifestyle of choice.
