The Advantages of NDIS Self-Management

NDIS Self Management


The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was introduced to support individuals with a disability, to live a fulfilling and independent life. Self-management is one of the many options available under the NDIS, that allows participants to have greater control over the support they receive. In this blog post, we will discuss the advantages of NDIS self-management and how it can benefit participants. 

What is NDIS Self-Management? 

NDIS self-management is a way of receiving support services, where participants manage their own support budget, and make decisions about the services they receive. Participants have the flexibility to choose their own support workers, and manage their own services, with the aim of achieving their goals and aspirations. 

Advantages of NDIS Self-Management 

Increased Control and Flexibility 

One of the biggest advantages of NDIS self-management is the increased control and flexibility it provides participants. Participants have the power to choose their own support workers, and manage their own services, according to their own needs and preferences. This gives participants more control over their support and ensures that the services received are tailored to their specific needs. 

Improved Outcomes 

With NDIS self-management, participants have the opportunity to choose the support workers and services that best meet their needs. This often results in improved outcomes, as participants are more satisfied with the support they receive. Participants are able to build strong relationships with their support workers, and receive services that are tailored to their individual needs, which can lead to better outcomes. 

Increased Confidence and Self-Esteem 

NDIS self-management empowers participants to take control of their support and services, which can boost their confidence and self-esteem. Participants who self-manage their support have the opportunity to be more involved in their own lives and make decisions about the support they receive. This can increase their sense of self-worth and contribute to their overall well-being. 


NDIS self-management can also be more cost-effective than other forms of support, as participants are able to manage their own budget and negotiate rates with support workers. This can result in cost savings for participants, as they are able to control their spending and find the most cost-effective solutions for their support needs. 


NDIS self-management is a flexible and empowering option for participants looking to take control of their support and services. With the ability to choose their own support workers and manage their own services, participants are able to improve their outcomes, boost their confidence and self-esteem, and achieve cost savings. If you are a participant in the NDIS and are interested in self-management, we recommend speaking to your support coordinator or NDIS planner to discuss your options.
