Your Life Your Choice is a QLD initiative designed so people with a disability or their carer can self-direct their allocated funding.
If you, or a person you know has ongoing funding from the Queensland Government, you may choose to self-direct that money, either on your own behalf or as the person’s carer or administrator.
This means that individuals and/or their carers can decide what is most important for the person’s care, and how their support needs should be met.
Parent to Parent works with individuals, families, and communities to plan the reasonable and necessary supports that can be purchased with the funding.
How can we help you manage your funding?
Self directed funding in the form of Your Life Your Choice and School Leaver Packages is a QLD program allowing people with a disability or their nominated family member/carer/advocate to have choice and control of the supports and services they use.
As funding is assessed and paid by the Department of Disability Services (QLD) there are a number of responsibilities required by recipients including staying within guidelines of spending, and reporting on a quarterly basis.
Your Life Your Choice – Self Directed Funding – will be available to all regions in Queensland
Parent to Parent manage more than 200 families under our YLYC Provider service and most tell us that our fees are affordable and they appreciate the flexibility of having two options to choose from. They tell us they recommend us to others because we take the time to get to know them and their families.
