    What is this workshop about?

    The idea of an active support network is really an old idea in our society. For people with disabilities, Circles of Support are an idea and practice that has been around for over 25 years. It is not a service or program but rather a group of committed people who are intentionally invited to come together in friendship and support of a person with disability, for the purpose of achieving their goals and protecting their interests into the future.

    What is this workshop about?

    Self-managing NDIS funding and directing one’s own supports is a very empowering way to have control and work towards the good things in life. However, people may be discouraged thinking that self-management is a difficult process.
