In collaboration with the National Alliance of Capacity Building Organisations (NACBO), of which CRU is a founding member, CRU developed two films that explored self-managed arrangements from the perspective of support workers.
Workforce Innovation through Self-Managed Supports is a website developed by NACBO, has been designed to resource people with disability, their families and supporters who are looking to self-manage their own supports.
It includes a collection of:
- Stories of people with disability and their families who are experienced at self-managing
- Support workers who work for people who self-manage
- Guides, fact sheets and suggestions about self-management
The website also includes a report that draws on the experience of 25 people living with disability and their families who have been self-managing their NDIS or state-based funding packages for some time, and 15 of their support workers. The goal of the report is to identify and share the key factors for success or difficulty in these arrangements.
