Organisational Information

Gold Coast Community Lifestyles has been operating as a service for individual funding recipients, providing experienced quality support staff for people with a wide range of disability. We pride ourselves on maintaining a smaller, more individualised and personal service.

Host Provider Model

Gold Coast Community Lifestyles provides a system for people in receipt of funding to have control of their support arrangements without having to deal with all of the associated legal, financial and administrative requirements.

Gold Coast Community Lifestyles works together with the person, their family or other commited persons to negotiate a 'host' agreement that outlines the roles and responsibilities of the person who is directing support and the roles and responsibility of Gold Coast Community Lifestyles administration and finance staff. Each agreement is negotiated one person at a time and is unique to the individuals/families situation and support needs.

Gold Coast Community Lifestyles holds an administers each persons funding in line with their funding agreement and the service agreement with the funding body. Gold Coast Community Lifestyles negotiates a budget based on individual funding agreements and reports directly to each person as negotiated.

Fee Structure

Gold Coast Community Lifestyles negotiates a fee, a percentage of funding, to cover costs incurred based on what Gold Coast Community Lifestyles is required to undertake. The administration fee is from 10% to 18% of the persons total funding as per the annual service budget/grant agreement. The fee includes all administration and ongoing support and development as needed.

The percentage negotiated will vary depending on whether using Gold Coast Community Lifestyles payrole service, a self managed funds arrangement (using contractors or external payrole services) or a combination.
