National Disability Insurance Scheme self managed plans: family advocacy survey

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Disability services Self-determination Australia

The Family Advocacy conducted a self-management survey in 2020 to highlight people’s priorities for support and workshops about how to self-manage support. They collected data from 90 respondents. The respondents were National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants and people who support NDIS participants who are either currently, partially, considering or no longer self-managing a NDIS plan. The survey included four closed questions and ten open questions. The questions included why participants self-manage, positive factors and challenges as well as what additional knowledge, skills and resources participants would like to help them with self-managing. The report identifies common barriers experienced by NDIS participants who self-manage as well as offering suggestions and solutions to improve and encourage self-management.
