Your Life Your Choice/NDIS

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?

P2P offers 2 ways of self directed funding for people with a disability and their families.  They are:

Option 1: P2P receives funding from Disability Services and transfers them to you quarterly into a nominated separate bank account.   For this option:

  • The person/family employs their own workers
  • The person/family undertakes all Human Resource requirements
  • The person/family provides invoices to P2P for processing
  • P2P reports back to the Department to release the next periods funds.

Option 2: Parent to Parent receives the funds from Disability Services and pays all expenses connected to the individual’s funding, for example invoices for support staff and personal expenditure including equipment. This is paid on provision of invoice and claims for expenses.

Parent to Parent is responsible for all of the Departments requirements including financial and statistical acquittal. It does not, however, participate in nor have any responsibility for recruitment, employment, training or supervision of staff.

The Person/family will be required to arrange and pay for all necessary insurances and adhere to all of the conditions outlined in the Award when paying staff.

Fee Structure

First Model – 3% administration fee

Second Model – 5% administration fee

There is also a $200 establishment fee (as of 1st July 2016)

Parent to Parent reserves the right to negotiate any increase in administration fees should the need arise.

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.
