Available to

Rockhamtpon, Capricorn Coast, Gladstone and Biloela

Target group

Families of children with disability aged 0-30 years.

Organisational Information

The Umbrella Network Rockhampton Inc. offers innovative and flexible options, directing the right information, care and support suited to the individual needs, goals and aspirations for special needs children (and/or young adults) and their families.

Through good planning processes and careful nurturing of relationships with parents/carers and their child; and engaging with family, friends, neighbours, community and any appointed decision makers, we are better able to understand their individual circumstances and urgency of their support needs. We are committed to help them encourage independence and discover what their child/young adult can achieve.

Host Provider Model

The Umbrella Network Rockhampton Inc. host provider service will help you to explore, articulate and document your personal goals, needs and aspirations to live a typical and ordinary everyday life within your community by identifying the following:

  • possible supports available to meet your needs
  • a range of resources available
  • what you identify as a priority for access to available resources
  • a developed and agreed upon individual plan

You will be able to decide where and what disability services and supports are to be purchased.
To ensure that the ongoing plan is still the best fit for you, we will review the plan on a quarterly basis as a minimum. However, we are always striving to ensure you have the maximum choice and control about how you are supported.

Fee Structure

Establishment fee: $100

Flat administration fee of 5%

The Umbrella Network Rockhampton Inc. will charge a flat administration fee of 5% of the value of your funding package. Any additional case management support can be purchased as needed.

Self-manage administration fee is 3%

Alternatively, you may choose to self-manage your own funds. This would be charged at a flat fee of 3% of the value of your funding package.
