Your Life Your Choice Host Providers

HELP Enterprises

Available to

Greater Brisbane extending to Sunshine and Gold Coasts and South West region for hosting and planning support.

Target group

People with a disability.

Organisational Information

Help Enterprises is a not for profit organisation established in 1968. Our Mission is to ‘Enhance the Lifestyle and Independence of People with a Disability’. We are a diverse organisation that employs people with disabilities in commercial business, provides Employment and Training for people with disabilities and provides individualised and small group programs for people with high support needs.

Host Provider Model

Each person and their family will engage with a Help Life Plan upon entering into our Hosted model to define their goals, strategies to reach these goals and undertake continuous reviews to update and plan the next steps. The plan will form the guide for where you will initially direct funds. This framework reflects a person centred approach and is in line with National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) framework. People will be asked to think about their goals and aspirations for life rather than how their disability impacts or puts limitations on their life.

Along with the Help Life Plan, we will assist you to:

  • manage your funding effectively to resource your supports
  • assist you to purchase supports that are in the 'reasonable and necessary' funding guidelines
  • provide you with regular financial statements to provide you choice and control of purchasing

Fee Structure

The ‘Help Life Plan’ costs $600 plus GST. This is a one-off establishment fee.

The fee structure outlined below allows individuals and their families to engage the level of support and mentoring that they feel is needed and also to move between levels of support as capacity grows or as circumstances change.

Level 1 - 8% of the total funding package

The person takes full responsibility for the planning, budgeting and organisation of their support. This package is designed for individuals and families that have a good understanding of the self-directed model and have the capacity to direct service provision independently as well as the confidence and desire to do so. This may suit individuals and their families managing packages where there is little or no change in the schedule of servicing (just the administration of the package), or for small packages that may involve the purchase of a single service type.

Level 2 - 10% of the total funding package

The person accepts most of the responsibilities but needs some guided support from the host provider. This package is designed for individuals and families who have some uncertainty about self-directing or may be managing more complicated packages with multiple stakeholders providing support.

Level 3 - 12% of the total funding package

The person requires more intensive assistance from the host provider to manage their plans and supports. This package may suit individuals and families who are short on time, need more ongoing guidance, mentoring and support or who are managing a more complex package. This level of service provision is a more intensive partnership between Help Enterprises and the individual and family.

In addition, we can provide Support Connection which entails and additional coordination and support at times of crisis, if there are changes to the plan requiring additional time limited support, staff recruitment and training is requested or there is a need to resolve complex service delivery issues for example.
The cost for Support Conneciton is $55.50 plus GST per hour.
