This resource by Heather Simmons is designed to help you and your family understand some of the strangeness and complexity that there is in our attitudes toward disability.

It aims to help you find a way through that complexity and has some ideas about how to see the world differently.

It will help you to think about what really matters so that you and your family don’t just get the services you require but get the life you want to live together.

WAIS’ guide to shared management

Shared management

The team at WA Individualised Services (WAIS) created this guide to help people understand Shared Management. Shared Management is where a person and/or their family work with a Support Organisation like Plan Navigators to share the management of their support arrangements. It enables people to direct, control, manage and monitor their support, in way that makes sense to the person, their family and their communities.
