Organisational Information

Centacare Brisbane has been providing services to families across South East Qld for over 50 years and supporting people with a disability for over 25years. We look forward to entering into the host provider role.

Host Provider Model

Skilled and experienced personnel operating within a person-centred, strengths-based framework will work in partnership with individuals and families who choose to self-direct their funding.

If the individual and/or family choose Centacare to host their support funding, our Resource Worker will meet them to discuss in greater detail their support needs, existing arrangements, choices and importantly their readiness to self-direct their support.

A well developed holistic support plan that reflects the importance of community inclusion and acknowledges the role of formal and informal supports is an essential element within the Self-directed support model.

This model puts the individual and their families in the driver’s seat in choosing the service and support that is flexible and reflects their needs and wishes to live a purposeful and meaningful life.

Fee Structure

Administration Fee - 5% of total funding package.

This fee will be charged as an administration fee (to receive Government funds, transfer agreed amounts to the individual/families as either advancement or reimbursement; pay invoices as approved in support plan; provide monthly financial statements to individuals/ families; financial reporting back to Government; opportunities for peer support through information and training sessions).

Fee for Service - $50/hour Resource Worker time billing.

Clients will be able to purchase support for structured tasks that the client may wish to purchase such as Support Plan Facilitation, Individual Capacity Building, liaison with Service Providers for Direct Services and Skill Development around self-direction
