Organisational Information

Operating since 1991, CODA South Assoc. Inc is a Brisbane based, not for profit organisation supporting individual’s 18-65 years, with a disability to live valued lives.

CODA South fully supports and recognises individual’s ability to make their own choices and decisions. We work with individuals and families to develop plans for support that recognises those choices and facilitates opportunities for growth and change.

Host Provider Model

CODA’s MY Way host provider model aims to ensure our services focus on the individual, their needs, aspirations and the choices they make about their lives.

MY Way recognises that self-directed support gives individuals and their support network the opportunity of a greater expression of their choices and is founded on the beliefs that individuals and their support networks know what will best meet their support needs.

Our model supports individuals to:

  • Direct the planning process to the greatest extent possible and make their own choices about how they wish to live their life, and who they need to be involved to exercise their choices
  • Plan in a way that respects the needs of family members and carers and their role in the person's life
  • Be assisted (where requested) to identify goals and the way these can be achieved
  • Assist to develop an individual plan to allocate resources/purchases based on their needs.
  • Explore supports that are flexible and wide-ranging, whilst still adhering to allocation and reporting requirements.
  • Be included and fully participate in community life
  • Be supported around budgeting, planning, recruitment, and training of staff where requested
  • Choose how much or how little assistance they require from MY Way along the self directed support spectrum.

To support individuals and their support network to self direct, and manage (wholly or partially) their funding, three alternative options are available through MY Way. We provide each individual with a ‘manual’ or Handbook and assist them to navigate through options available to them in self-directing or managing funding.

By having this comprehensive manual, it allows individuals to be thoroughly informed and therefore make their own decisions and choices for support, determine their individual, needs, wants and desired outcomes.

Our review process will be largely determined by the individual. They will determine if their plan still meets their needs or if they wish to increase or decrease their level of self direction. Individuals have the choice and flexibility to change their plan as and when they need to.
