Is Self Direction right for you?

Self-Direction is about having control over how your funding is used, including being able to choose and employ your own support workers.

There are different names for this type of funding, and it can vary by region. It may be Individualised Funding (IF), Enabling Good Lives (EGL) or Mana Whaikaha.

Start your journey by following these 3 simple steps.



STEP ONE – ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS

  1. Do you want to have choice, control and flexibility over how you use your funding? An example is choosing who provides your support and when.



  2. In being the “boss of your own life”, would you be willing to become an employer of your own support worker(s) and take on the responsibilities for managing your budget?



  3. Do you already have support funding approved by your Needs Assessment Co-ordinator, DHB or ACC?

STEP 3 – THINK ABOUT WHICH PROVIDER MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU

If you think that Self-Direction is right for you, you will need to choose a Provider who has the systems, tools and values that fit with what you and your whanau want and need to enable you to manage your funding.
