What does it mean?
- It’s a individual agreement between you and us. It’s not something you can ask NDIS for
- You can use your existing staff but we employ them on your behalf
- We act on your behalf as the employer so we take care of paying your staff and some of the legal obligations relating to recruitment and insurance
- We can help you find staff when you need extra support. This is called recruitment
How can SHARED MANAGEMent work well for you?
- You want to be in control of who works with you but don’t feel ready to be the employer
- You want to be in control of supervising and coordinating your own staff
- You want to be in control of interviewing for new staff
- You want to be in control of what your staff get paid per hour
- You want to be in control of how your staff work with you and what they support you with
What do you need to know?
- This is a fee for service. We work out a fee with you to undertake the role of the Employer
- You will get more hours of support because you are not having to pay the full NDIS Agency Managed hourly rates
- You do have extra responsibilities than people who would use an agency managed service
- Your staff will be covered by an award called the Social Community Home Care and Disability Services Industry (SCHADS Award), so there are rules we have to follow
- You can use your NDIS plan no matter how it is managed. You use an NDIS Agency Managed, Plan Managed or Self-managed plan to enable you to implement a shared management solution
- Put simply, it’s a partnership between you and us. You tell us what level of control you want and when you need us to act on your behalf
