What We Will Cover
Jan and Heidi Kruger will talk about the benefits and challenges of directly people using NDIS funding. Jan will talk about what is involved with insurance, tax, superannuation and payroll with input from a local accountant, Jane Hadrill. Jan will share how they found her son’s sports coach and mentor and the recruiting process they used. If people are interested in directly employing their own staff we will be providing a starter pack for you to take home for a fee that can be claimed through the NDIS.
Adrienne Gault will talk about how their family found the right supports for their son to experience meaningful work experience using a contractor. Adrienne will talk about what was involved and how they approached the workplace with the idea of paying for some mentorship using an existing workplace staff member.
Mel McFadden will talk about using HireUp, an online platform that gives Australians with disability the power to choose their own support workers and direct how people work for them. Mel will provide an insight to how their family have found HireUp and what this has meant for their family.
