Professional Organising for NDIS Participants
I believe everyone should be able to live in a functional space that meets their needs and, more importantly, allows them to achieve their goals. Many people with a disability often find it challenging to organise their homes and lives. Ultimately this results in many NDIS participants struggling to function in their homes due to clutter and disorganisation.
You may be living with
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
- Anxiety Disorder
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
I work with NDIS participants who are struggling, overwhelmed, and stressed with clutter and disorganisation. My organising solutions involve
- Listening, reviewing, and understanding the participant’s organisational challenges
- Identifying goals and priorities and establishing a plan of where to start
- Working with the participant to develop organising systems that meet their needs
- Hands-on support with the decluttering and organising process
- Training and upskilling on methods to stay organised
- Establishing maintenance systems to keep participants organised
I have worked with NDIS participants to organise the following
- The home, from the kitchen to the bathroom and even the shed. I have worked with NDIS participants to organise any area of their home
- Paperwork, sorting through paperwork can be overwhelming. I have worked with NDIS participants to help them establish paperwork systems to manage their paperwork and give them more control over their information
- Digital content, I’ve supported participants to help organised digital files and upskilling in using digital technology
My work focuses on giving my clients more control over their space and life, improving their daily living and building their capacity.
My organising work with NDIS participants can support them in achieving the following outcomes
- Improve daily living by having an organised and functional home and life
- Establish organisational and life skills that promote independent living, empower participants to engage within the community and improve their overall life
- Enhance the safety and functionality of the participant’s home
Creating Positive Spaces is not a registered NDIS provider; as a result, we can only work with self-managed or planned-managed participants. I can work with support coordinators or participants to see how my service fits into an NDIS plan and how it may be funded.
I take a calm, non-judgmental approach to organising. I acknowledge that everyone learns and organises differently; therefore, I create solutions tailored to individual needs—ensuring that organising solutions work for the participant. Participants will always be in control of the organising process; they set the goals and determine what they want to achieve during each session. And I will not make participants throw things out; what items stay and what goes will be their choice; my job is to support them with the decision.
