Self Management – Confident, Connected & In Control: Gold Coast

October 16 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Self Management – Confident, Connected and in Control, Upper Coomera

CRU has funding from the NDIA to provide individual capacity building activities as part of the ILC program. Between October 2019 and May 2020 CRU will deliver workshops in six locations on self-management. People say it can be all too hard – but find out what’s actually involved and what the benefits are.

About the Workshops:

Self-managing doesn’t have to mean doing everything on your own.


Come to one or both of these short workshops to share creative ideas, develop the confidence to self-manage well, and connect with other people on the same journey.

WORKSHOP 1: Starting to Self-Manage with Confidence

9:00AM – 11:30AM

Are you just starting out with self-managing your NDIS plan, or wondering if self-management is for you? Join us for a short workshop that will de-mystify self-management, examine the benefits and challenges and give you some steps to help you to get started.

WORKSHOP 2: Self-Managing for the Life You Want 

12:30PM – 3:00PM

Self-management really means taking control: of your life, your supports, and often a team! This short, interactive workshop is about how to self-manage well: by being clear about your vision for the life you want, finding the right people for the job, and building a team of paid and unpaid supporters.

“Until we did this ourselves, 
money was spent on things I wasn’t interested in and that is a waste.
I used to feel like a square peg in a round hole; now I’m making the hole just my shape.”
