Frequently asked questions
Why is your pricing so much lower than the NDIS suggested hourly rate?
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.
How much do you pay your Carers?
Do you charge any prepayment, subscription or credit card fees?
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.
Is there a minimum booking length?
You must make a booking of at least one hour.
Does the price change depending on the Social Carer I choose?
Our hourly rates are the same regardless of which Social Carer you want to work with.
Does the price change based on the services provided?
Our rates are the same regardless of what Activity you'd like to do. Our Social Carers can help with social support and community access, like exercise, meal preparation, transportation, and a companion for social events. If you're looking for personal care or medical care services, email@example.com we'll connect you with our partner network.
