At My Plan Manager, we know that your support network is everything. We’re proud to be part of that network for each of our clients, alongside their family and friends, support coordinators and other important providers. The NDIS can be hard work, and support is essential.
But what if you could access a whole community of support? People who are also in your situation or have been there before you. People with more ideas, different perspectives, creative solutions. People who understand.
So we’ve started an online platform called Kinora, where people with disability and their support network can connect with each other. You can ask questions or share thoughts with the Kinora community. You can also respond to questions and share your knowledge and experience.
Kinora is built on inclusiveness, kindness and support, and we make sure it’s a safe space, free from judgement or negative behaviour.
My Plan Manager founder, Claire Wittwer Smith has always focussed on offering the tools and support to build capacity and empower people with disability, as well as the people who support them.
“We know that community connection is so important and often when people feel disconnected, they can also feel disempowered.
“My Plan Manager is about giving people better choice and control by helping them understand and use their NDIS budget. Kinora is an extension of that.”
You don’t need to be a My Plan Manager client to join Kinora. Anybody can join the Kinora Community for free, and if you join before the end of February you’ll get a longer free trial – until 31 March. During the trial period you will get free access to our NDIS experts and a private discussion group for you and your close supporters.
Once you finish your free trial there will be a subscription fee of $14.99 a month to keep all the Kinora features, which can be paid from the participant’s NDIS plan. If you only want to use the community discussion, that’s fine – this will be free forever.
Kinora helps people with disability and their supporters to build capacity and community connection by starting a conversation, having a yarn, comparing notes and learning from each other.
Together, we can all help take the stress out of NDIS for each other.
That is true empowerment and that is Kinora.
