This peer group is for people who

  • are curious about self-managing NDIS funding
  • have recently started their self-management journey, or
  • have been managing their NDIS plan for a while.

We believe the self-management of NDIS funding is the most successful and flexible way to find the best support to achieve a person’s goals.

But funding on its own doesn’t get a person a good life. Community contribution, meaningful participation and freely given relationships are just as important. These elements must be considered alongside the practicalities of self-management.

Self-managing NDIS funding can feel daunting at first. But you don’t have to figure it out all on your own.

Join our virtual peer group sessions over lunch each month. Hear from guest speakers, connect with other families, share your insights, learn from the experiences of others, and feel supported.

Imagine More cannot provide referrals to service providers. But as a group, we can provide insights to help you

  • understand what to ask for and where to look
  • engage the right people to support you or your family members to achieve their goals.

Comments from past members of the Self-managing NDIS Peer Group

“There is so much knowledge and experience within the group.  I wish I could join in more regularly – as I would gain so much.”
“I think it is great having a combination of informal sessions and presentations and having a bit of a theme each time.”
“More heads together make problem-solving easier.”
