WAiS has co-designed and developed a range of resources, as well as three online learning resource programmes around Planning, Self Management and Shared Management!
If you are using assistive technology, we recommend using Adobe Acrobat to read our resources, rather than your web browser’s built in PDF viewer.
Choosing a Service Provider
The resource is to assist people in thinking about, and choosing a service provider that is best for them. In the resource there are a number of different areas with questions to explore. You can go through the whole resource, or just choose some areas of your particular interest to focus on. Whilst the resource is not an exhaustive list of questions, it is a list that people with disability and their families, have told us would be helpful when deciding on a provider.
Engaging your own Supports
These resources are for people who live in Western Australia who have decided to privately hire their own support persons for the purpose of providing them with supports and services.
Starting a Business
WAiS, in collaboration with the Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC), have been working on easy read resources to support people with starting their own small business. There will be more resources being released soon.
Supported Decision Making
Supported decision making is a term used to refer to a range of practices whereby people with disabilities are assisted to make or implement their own decisions.

‘I want to share my life with people who matter to me, people I know care about me, like a family or very close friends. After all, what’s life if you have no one to share it with?’
Provider Development Resources
Through a WA Department of Communities, Disability Services Grant, we developed a range of resources to support providers with Individualised Services.

The Shared Management Guide Project, aimed to increase individuals, families and the sectors capacity to successfully offer and utilise self and shared management. Key outcomes of the project include the launch of the Shared Management Resource; ‘A guide for Support Organisations exploring Shared Management’.
