What We Do > PLAN MANAGEMENT
DSC reckons that Plan Management is one of the most underrated supports in the NDIS.
For participants, it is a fabulous option to maximise the flexibility of NDIS funds without the administrative burden of self management. But the business case for delivering Plan Management is unclear for many providers. Speak to our specialist consultants for advice on:
- The opportunities and risks involved in offering Plan Management
- Your obligations to participants and the NDIA
- Best practice approaches
- NDIS Portal and Plan Management processes

Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.
