Most of the tools and resources are already available on the internet. Why should I subscribe to the Self Manager Hub?
Yes, there are many resources available on the internet to help self managers. What we do at the Self Manager Hub is bring these resources together into one large library, making it easier to find the information you are looking for. We also create our own resources for self managers. Then catalogue each resource, allocate key words, and highlight the format of each resource. Some examples of formats are: Auslan, Easy English, checklists, community languages or created for First Nations People. We aim to have resources and tools that everyone can access.
Creating, sourcing and maintaining these resources takes time. The long term sustainability of the Self Manager Hub is dependent on this income from our community.
We believe self management is key to the success of the NDIS, by driving innovation in the sector. To help support our work, grow our resources, and promote self-management, please join us with a paid subscription.
Can I claim subscription cost from my NDIS plan?
Yes, if your NDIS funds are self managed or plan managed! There is a line item in core: Self-Management Capacity Building.
Subscription to the Self Manager Hub provides you with easy access to a library of tools and resources to help build your understanding, skills and confidence in self managing your NDIS plan. There are lots of resources with new and innovative ideas about how you can use your NDIS funding flexibly to have choice and control over your supports and your life.
If your funding is Plan Managed you will need to show your Plan Manager this line item number so they know how to claim on you NDIS plan.
