We specialise in providing support for the self-management of funds to ensure every individual has the control and choice over their life in every possible way. Highlights are to self-direct your goal development, manage your own planning, staffing, funding and budgeting, administration, and engagement in your community. Commonly referred to as the Self Managed Model.
