Organisational Information

Better Together Assoc Inc is a community organisation designed to develop a more inclusive Caboolture Region and contribute to the overall strength and wellbeing of the community by developing and maintaining a wide range of strategies, partnerships and affiliations to promote, support and maintain meaningful, valued roles and relationships for people with a disability and/or mental health issue in the social, economic and civic life of Caboolture.

Better Together believes that although there are many different experiences of inclusion in valued community roles and relationships, there are common elements that contribute to making people feel included such as :

  • being there
  • feeling like you belong
  • being missed if you are not there

We will partner with other services so we are at a great capacity to support your needs and aspirations.

Host Provider Model

Better Together - Better Choices is a direct payment model and assists you (and your family if applicable) to build and develop your skills, understanding and capability to self direct your disability supports and services. Better Choice provides a comprehensive level of services from planning, coordinating, facilitation, financial administration, training and mentoring. Better Choices collaborates with other service providers and mainstream services to be efficient and cost effective for you, allowing and providing you with opportunity for greater choice and control over disability supports and services.

Fee Structure

Fees and charges will be individualised depending on the responsibilities you wish to undertake, and the responsibilities you would like Better Choices to undertake.

Establishment - $550

You will have an initial 2 hour free consultation during which you will fill out a questionnaire and receive a fee schedule. This meeting will inform you of how Your Life Your Choice works. You will also have some time to think about the things you will need Better Choices to do for you and if we are the right fit for supporting you to self-direct your funding.
The establishment fee includes:

  • meeting with you and your family (if applicable)
  • development of agreement
  • establishing your details in our finance system
  • providing you with information on employer responsibilities and legislative requirements
  • explanation of fees and Better Together services

Better Choices estimates there will be at least half an hour of administration per month and cost approximately $345 over the year.
Better Choices will work with you to ensure your fees do not exceed 18% of your total funding package.
