Plan Managers are financial intermediaries for your NDIS Funding. Their job is to pay your service providers using your NDIS funding, and advise you on what you can and can't spend your NDIS money on.
This service will be funded in your plan under the category Improved Life Choices.
If you've been funded for plan management and would like to sign up for our services, you can register on our website. You'll then receive an email with further instructions.
Support Coordinators help you find and manage your service providers. They are here to assistance you in understanding your plan and what services are available, then to help you take action.
If you have support coordination funding in your plan and are looking for help you can register for our services on our website. If you'd like more information, please don't hesitate to enquire via phone or email.
Our pre-planning services offer you time with one of our experienced coordinators to put together all the materials you will need for the NDIS and to assist with your planning meeting. This may be an initial meeting to get an NDIS plan, a secondary meeting if you have been previously unsuccessful, or a review meeting if your original plan if insufficient for your needs. We will help you understand the language of the NDIS and fight for a plan that is customised to you.
We take pre-planning clients on a case by case basis to ensure that we only charge for our time if we are confident that our efforts will get you the NDIS funding you need. Please send all enquires directly through our website or email 8478173485.
Founded by a dad of two children with disability.
Craig Shallard is our founder and a director of Morris Fox.
He has lived experience with disability having two children with ASD, both of whom are participants of the NDIS. He is passionate about assisting people with disability and has been a long term advocate for people with disability.
Among many voluntary roles, he has been a board member of AMAZE (Autism Victoria) and a school councillor at his children's special school.
Craig is a CPA and worked for many years in private practice as a tax accountant, but for the past decade Craig worked at the Productivity Commission reporting specifically reporting on the efficiency and effectiveness of disability services provided by the Federal and State Governments as well as assisting with the enquiry into the disability sector which ultimately led to the introduction of the NDIS.
His knowledge and expertise of the NDIS come from both aspects, working and volunteering at both a government and provider level as well as self-managing his children's NDIS plans encompassing everything from planning meetings and dealing with LACs and planners, then review of the plans through to organising service providers and monitoring budgets. He not only works as a plan manager but lives it as well.
In the past year, Craig has had had the privilege of assisting hundreds of people access the NDIS.
