My Place WA has produced a booklet called “A Guide to Engaging Your Own Support Workers” to help people with disability to self-manage their supports.

This booklet will help you if:

1. You have funding for your personal support through a funding body,

2.  You have thought about the best ways to arrange your support (that is, through an agency that provides these services versus organising it all yourself), and

3.  You have decided to employ or contract your own support workers and manage your funding yourself. If you have not carefully explored points 2 and 3 above, it is strongly recommended that you work through Attachments 9 and 10 at the end of this resource, and decide what will work best for you. If you decide to employ your support workers yourself then follow the steps in this booklet. Even if you choose to have a provider employ your support workers, you may find the material in this resource useful.
