Host Provider Model

Disability Lifestyle solutions provides a solution to the financial red tape associated with funding received from the government.

We take away the onerous tasks of administering your funding to meet the legal and financial requirements as laid down in your funding agreement.

We are with you every step of the way from planning to acquittal of your funding.

We set up the budgets and reporting processes as required by your funding agreement. We will work with you to set up your personal plan.

We advise you of your legal requirements and can ensure that these are met on time.

At all times your needs and goals are paramount and we work with you to achieve the appropriate result. We can also support you towards being able to administer the funds with little input from us.

Fee Structure


$500 one-off fee. This includes an initial consultation with you to establish your needs, goals, support requirements and to discuss with you the choices that are available. A Support and Action Plan will be developed and linked to your budget, and a management and reporting plan will be developed.

Mentoring Role - 5% Administration fee

We are strictly 'hands off' in that we don't control any of your plans and budget. We provide regular consultation if required and we guide you through your action plan and show you how it affects your budget. We offer advice only. This option will suit someone who has experience in managing budgets and formulating plans. Someone who has the confidence to take on all the responsibilities.

Part Control Role - 7.5% Administration fee

This role would suit someone who has some experience in budgeting and planning but not the confidence to do it themselves fully. We will share the load with you. In addition to the mentoring role, we will also develop the plans and budgets with you in the initial stage and will intervene should your plan and budget become out of balance. You will still control the progress of your plan and the supports you want to achieve your goals. We will offer advice wherever and whenever it is required. We will allocate your payments to your budget for you and submit the reports to the department on your behalf.

Full Control Role - 10% Administration fee

If you choose this option you are giving us full responsibility over your funding to ensure all your paperwork, reports, budgets, and plans are completed and lodged on time. Basically we do everything! We monitor all expenditure and apply it to your budget. We will advise of the type of spending allowed by your plan and how much you can spend in terms of your budget. We will ensure the payments to be made to suppliers are paid within the suppliers timeframe. We will liaise with the department at all times. We will meet with you on a regular basis to update you on your plan and budget progress. We can source suppliers and support workers (if required) to help you achieve your goals.

You can choose any of the roles above to start with and change to a different role if you become more confident in your own abilities. We only require a months notice so we can make the appropriate arrangements.
