Living My Way is a trusted member-based not-for-profit organisation with over 26 years’ experience in supporting people with disabilities to live a self-directed life. We take an individualised and holistic approach to empowering our members to live as independently as they choose. We pride ourselves on being an honest and professional organisation with member representation on the Board.
Living My Way’s core business is to support people with a disability to employ their own support workers. Living My Way can help you to recruit and pay your support workers while ensuring you maintain a safe and compliant workplace in your home. We can assist you in recruiting support workers by advertising jobs, performing due diligence, preparing and issuing contracts and boarding of staff. We then run the payroll and pay associated costs and obligations such as super, employer insurances and government reporting. If you encounter issues with staff, then we can provide access to workplace relations and Work Health Safety specialists.
Living My Way can provide this service to any NDIS participant with a core budget that is plan managed, self-managed or NDIA managed. Furthermore, we can support participants who are funded for services through insurance providers, Commonwealth Continuity of Support participants or those who are self-funded.
What people say about Living My Way services
Participant 1: “I have achieved a full and wonderful life in every way and my disability hasn’t once held me back. This would have been very different if I hadn’t had the support of Self-Directed Living. It is my passion to enable others with disabilities to access the services that Living My Way offer.”
Participant 2: “I do my own recruitment, rosters and day to day management, liaise with my staff and roster them. I really enjoy doing this. At the end of the day, I am the person they answer to. It’s very important to me to have control and choice…. My work day can change but I can control and negotiate changes as I manage my staff. I learned a lot of skills negotiating and dealing with people.”
