Frequently asked questions

We can offer more affordable rates because we specialise in social and community support (and don't offer medical and personal care). Our focus on community participation is designed to maximise the amount of care you receive, so you can set bigger and better goals for your Core Support and Capacity Building plans.

We aim to pay our Social Carers above industry rates because we value the work they do and want to attract the best people in the industry. View our Social Carer pay rates.

We want our pricing to be as simple as possible, which means no added fees. You only pay for the time you spend with your Social Carer.

You must make a booking of at least one hour.

Our hourly rates are the same regardless of which Social Carer you want to work with.

Our rates are the same regardless of what Activity you'd like to do.
