How much does it cost?
The cost of belonging to a Network in support terms has been assessed by Community Connections as $80.00 + GST per week. Each member and their family negotiate how they will allocate funds to make this payment for support.
This can be privately funded or through the allocated of DSS (NASC) support hours if the outcomes are consistent with the goals identified in the needs assessment. Community Connections has the contractual capacity to provide Supported Living (2.5 hours per week), Home Based Support of Home Management and Personal Cares (3.5 hours per week). Additionally, personal budget funding can be used.
