  •   Ways you can manage your NDIS funding,
  •   What is self-management?

  •   How to self-manage? What’s involved and what you need to do?
  •   Hints for planning meetings with the NDIA,
  •   Employing workers different ways,
  •   Do you have to do this all on your own? 

Who For: This seminar is best suited to people with a disability, their families, allies & others who want to find out more about their NDIS and how to self-manage funding and employ support workers. 

Presenter: Jan Kruger is from Canberra where her son Jack is a participant in the NDIS. Jack’s family have always had a vision that Jack would lead a typical life in the community, full of the opportunities and experiences that his older sisters have. Jan is also the Director and cofounder of Imagine More, a family led organisation based in Canberra that aims to strengthen family leadership and advocacy for people with a disability to get the good things in life.
