Meet Tia

A self-managing NDIS Participant

The NDIS has provided me with lots of information and resources for understanding my plan, finding service providers and employing my own staff if I choose. I am feeling good about being able to make my own choices and I want to make sure I make the best decisions. Something I have been thinking about though is how do support workers know about the NDIS and the importance of supporting me to achieve my goals?

A friend mentioned the G8Way website and how one of his support workers had a G8Way Completion Record. I didn’t waste any time logging on to the G8Way website and checking it out for myself. I had found the answer to my question! If my prospective support workers have a G8Way Completion Record or are willing to get one, then I will know that they do understand the NDIS and how to better support me.
