Policy on the Self-management of Funded Disability Supports

Date: 11/05/2017

In December 2016 the Disability Services Commission (the Commission) engaged Western Australia’s Individualised Services (WAiS) in partnership with People with disability WA (PWdWA) to facilitate a public consultation on the Commission’s future policy and pricing approach to self-management.

On 28 February 2017, the Commission received WAiS’ report on the consultation detailing the feedback provided from people with disability, families and the disability sector, along with twelve recommendations.

The report reflects a thorough consultation and the Commission wishes to thank all those people who participated in the process.

The recommendations have been accepted by the Commission and incorporated in the final version of the Self-management of Funded Supports Policy.

The Commission has also noted the strong feedback in relation to a single pricing framework for both disability service providers and self-managers, and will adopt this approach in the new Policy. Metropolitan and Regional Support Clusters and Price Frameworks are currently being amended to reflect this position, and the guide and procedures to implement this pricing approach are being developed.

Both the Policy and the updated Support Clusters and Price Frameworks will apply from 1 July 2017.
