Support Manager – Self-directed Support

Want to be a Support Manager who truly empowers people to make a difference in their lives and to reach beyond their goals?

With Self-directed Support, people recruit and manage their own staff. The Support Manager ensures that all aspects of the support services are in place, ensuring the person’s vision and goals remain the focus of their support. The Support Manager ensures these services are adjusted in response to any changing needs and are provided within the resources of NDIS funding.

The Support Manager works in partnership with the NDIS participant, their family, the workers, a CLP Inclusion Coach and CLP’s admin staff.

Responsibilities include: coordinating worker contracts and training, managing individual budgets, documenting support plans, identifying and managing service risks and HR issues and coaching NDIS participants and their family to manage and sustain workers.
