Organisational Information

Horizons Respite & Recreation Association (HRRA) provides services to people with disability in a warm and welcoming environment, promoting a positive outcome for all, focusing on individuals needs and supporting individuals with disability to achieve their potential.

HRRA is highly experienced in the delivery of support services to the Moreton Bay and Brisbane region and has been delivering support services to the community for more than 20 years. Currently supporting individuals across the disability spectrum from those who have high complex needs to those who require a little help with daily tasks.

Being an accredited learning and life skills organisation, HRRA focuses on a case work framework that supports the assessment of functional, behavioural, communication, support strategies and individuals strengths. Implementing a new innovative system that support procedures and quality.

Host Provider Model

No Boundaries YLYC will be directed by the individual in conjunction with family members and relevant stakeholders. We will provide flexible support options to ensure that we assist the individual to reach their own personal potential. We acknowledge that individuals are experts of their own life and value peer networking and information sharing as vital sources of support.

No Boundaries YLYC will meet with the individual and relevant stakeholders in an initial review to develop a needs based assessment, and discuss relevant and appropriate support opportunities. At the centre of planning is the individuals right to choose service provision and a support approach that meets their needs and preferences.

No Boundaries YLYC model of service is divided into three sections that the individual can choose according to their preference, previous experience or current situation. Within these three models there are key responsibilities involved including and not limited to: planning, budgeting, organisation of support and services, purchasing, reporting, and working with the participant. The fees will depend on the range of responsibilities that No Boundaries YLYC will have within the individuals funded package.

Fee Structure

Free inititial consultation

Establishment fee - $600

An establishment fee will be applicable to all new applicants.
The fee is inclusive of:

  • the initial planning process and subsequent development of an individual plan
  • the initial financial and service management set-up costs

Model 1: 5% of total funding

This level of support may suit individuals who have a solid understanding of the self-directed model and are confident in their ability to coordinate and financially manage their own services. If your support requriements are fairly consistent or you only access one service, this may be the model for you.

  • a planning session to document your goals and service provision requirements
  • information about available services, referrals for industrial relation requirements, templates for employment contracts and budgets
  • full annual review of your current goals, service provision requirements and current budget
  • receipt of funding and attending to reporting requirements with relevant funding bodies
  • release of funding directly to the individual

Model 2: 7-8% of total funding

  • 7% applies where over 50% of the total funding is managed by the individual
  • 8% applies where under 50% of the total funding is managed by the individual

This level of support may suit individuals who require varying levels of assistance to coordinate and pay for their required services. Individuals who would like to eventually self-direct all of their funding would be best suited to this model.

  • all supports listed under Model 1
  • assistance with goal planning and service provision requirements
  • assistance with budgeting and acquisition of service providers, including negotiating and brokerage considerations
  • working with the individual and their family to develop a better understanding of the self-directed model

Model 3: 10% of total funding

This level of support would be best suited to individuals and families who do not have the time or desire to coordinate their own service provision requirements. Under this level individuals and families will receive support in all areas of managing and planning support requirements. Individuals will have the opportunity to participate in the process at a level that is suitable to their own needs.

  • all supports listed under Model 1 and 2
  • ongoing management of brokered arrangements
  • budgeting and coordination of services on your behalf
  • ongoing support in all areas of your service provision requirements
