You can directly employ the people you already know and trust as your support worker! We do all the tricky stuff , all the paper work; all the compliance and documentation for you the participant and you the worker!
We support you to directly employ your support workers and or allied health professionals without the need to go through an agency.
BWHC now includes support coordination and specialist support coordination to support you to understand and implement the funded supports in your plan and link you to community, mainstream and other government services. A support worker will assist you to build skills and direct your life and connect you to providers. A specialist support coordinator can be funded where there is high or complex needs in your situation, and will be a qualified social worker, psychologist, or occupational therapist. Bilingual practitioners are available.
A support coordinator will assist you to negotiate with providers and how much it will cost out of your plan. They can also assist you to plan ahead and prepare for your plan review. Support coordinators will assist you to optimise your plan. You can access funds for support coordination from your capacity building budget.
