Host Provider Model

IMPACT’s friendly staff will make it easy to understand Self-Directed Support. We use plain language and make it easy for you. We will walk you step-by-step through the process. You will have an opportunity to make new friends and meet others who are choosing to manage their own funding to share ideas and help you create the Support Plan which is best for you.

Our staff live and work in the Bundaberg region so they have local knowledge. They have the skills and expertise to work in a flexible way to help you build and manage a personalised self-directed Your Life Your Choice Plan.

IMPACT is well established in our community so we have strong partnerships and networks in place with other service providers to help you plan the service combination that is right for you.

You have a choice about how much involvement or support you want from IMPACT to help manage your Plan - it may be very little because you have decided to take full responsibility for managing your own Plan, or IMPACT can have more involvement, depending on what level of responsibility you want to take – it is up to you!

The monthly financial statements you receive from IMPACT will keep you informed of how much money you have received and what has been spent so that you always know the status of your funding.
