I am the mother of an adult daughter with Down syndrome and have just completed my first year as a self-managed NDIS participant.
I was initially reluctant to take on self-management but, with the help and encouragement from Sue Dymond and iDareU, I gradually became more confident and able to tackle the challenges it threw up. Sue has an extensive knowledge of how the NDIS works and it has been very reassuring to have somebody like this to support me. Throughout the year Sue has always made herself available to answer questions and deal with any problems, no matter how big or small. As the mother of a disabled daughter she has a deep understanding of the problems faced by carers and has a realistic and practical approach to her work – and a great sense of humour.
iDareU has recently assisted me with my plan review, helping me to present my case in the best way possible. I had support before, during and after the interview and, despite some complex family issues, I ended up with a plan better than I had hoped for. I would strongly recommend iDareU as a support service for carers.
