What Do Plan Managers Do?
A Plan Manager is a dedicated service provider entrusted with the responsibility of managing an individual’s NDIS plan on their behalf. Their role is integral in simplifying and enhancing the NDIS experience for the participant. Plan Managers offer valuable support by overseeing the individual’s NDIS funding, ensuring that service providers are paid promptly for the supports received. This level of management empowers the individual with greater control over the utilisation of their NDIS funding, allowing them to make choices that align with their unique needs and goals.
Furthermore, Plan Managers are committed to helping the individual acquire new skills to foster independence, enabling them to take charge of certain aspects themselves. Plan management is essential because it ensures that the individual has a voice in shaping how they reach their goals, select the supports and services that suit them best, and determine how they access these supports and services. It’s about putting the participant’s preferences and needs at the forefront of their NDIS journey.
