Organisational Information

Carers Queensland Inc. is the peak body representing the diverse concerns, needs and interests of carers in Queensland. Carers Queensland believes that all carers regardless of their age, disability, sexuality, religion, socioeconomic status, geographical location or their cultural and linguistic differences should have the same rights, choices and opportunities and be able to enjoy optimum health, social and economic wellbeing and participate in family and community life, employment and education like other citizens of the State.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life of all carers throughout Queensland.

Host Provider Model

Carers Queensland can offer a state wide service and will utilise the PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope) planning model as part of our service provision for this program.

The PATH Model is not just another way of doing a service plan; it represents a different way of thinking. It is person-centred planning, rooted in respect for the person with a disability, their family, carers and any relevant support people, stakeholders and organisations.

Participation in the PATH planning process is a compulsory requirement for acceptance into this program.

Following completion of the PATH process, a Personal Support Plan will be developed which clearly articulates roles, responsibilities and relevant expenditure details.

Carers Queensland will provide the client with a quarterly statement for all income and expenditure administered by Carers Queensland on behalf of the client and undertake all regulatory reporting to the Queensland Government.

Fee Structure

PATH Plan review $150

Administration fee (inclusive of processing payments and reporting responsibilities) 5% of total package
