“Supporting and caring for your own child with a disability is hard enough (in our case a 12 year old with Cerebral Palsy GMFCS V and non verbal who requires 24/7 care). After years of being agency managed and paying the 50% premium in overhead management costs we switched to self management with Real Support Choices on our most recent NDIS plan renewal.
What an amazing experience, Yes it is self management but with a small monthly fee you have some serious resources and talent available to assist you along the path of hiring your own staff, helping with the PAYG and BAS statements and a fantastic rostering solution that is easily accessible to your staff and makes the timesheet entry process so efficient it’s really difficult to fathom how the agency model can still exist.
For the little bit of time it takes each week to do rosters and transfer pays, you are getting much better mileage from your NDIS funding and somewhere to keep track of your invoices. The Real Support Choices platform is well worth trialling and ticks an awful lot of boxes if you find yourself looking for a self management solution.”
