Introduction Participant Owned Service Provision

Good Directions supports NDIS participants to set up their own Not for Profit Support Service and facilitate receiving funds usually kept by service providers to pay their own overheads.

This frees NDIS participants from the restrictions of NDIS cluster categories and makes funding available for rent, purchasing a home, a car, food and other personal costs.

Families still get total control over who they employ and manage their own teams.

Good Directions also handles all the claiming of NDIS funding for staff freeing you up for more important things.

In this webinar, Good Directions CEO Peter Knight and NSW/ACT Operations Manager David Sneyd further explains the model.
