We certainly hope not. It is important for people with disability to remember that their support package is their money. This is especially the case if you hold an NDIS self-managed, individualised, or self-directed package.
The agency that holds your package should work with you to spend your funds as you wish. Using part of the package to engage support workers through Hireup should be no exception.
If they don’t, there are plenty of agencies that will. If your existing agency won’t let you use Hireup, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on (02) 9113 5933 and we will do what we can to help.
