The NDIS plans to provide support funding to 460,000 people across the country. But for the thousands of Australians who aren’t eligible for NDIS funding or are waiting for it to roll out in their area – the Better Caring platform is a flexible, affordable support option.
Unfortunately, many Australians with an acquired, mental or sensory disability do not meet eligibility requirements set by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) meaning thousands are unable to receive NDIS funding.
Platforms like Better Caring offer a variety of support options to those seeking it – regardless of whether the government provides them funding to help manage their disability.
How Better Caring can help you
Better Caring is home to a community of over 2,300 support workers with unique levels of support services and qualifications – all of which you can see on each workers’ profile. Whether you’re looking for support to get out and about, want a hand around the house and garden, or assistance with personal matters, you can access it all on Better Caring.
Every support worker on Better Caring is an independent contractor – that means they set their own payment rates, are motivated to connect with clients in their area and are effectively creating their own support business.
If you aren’t eligible for NDIS funding, you can still connect, schedule and pay your supports all in one place – the Better Caring platform.
Being able to pay privately for disability support is becoming increasingly important for Australians – especially as the government has expressed that some people living with autism or mental health issues will soon have their eligibility stripped.
What are the benefits of paying privately for disability support?
Better Caring allows you to pay directly for the support you receive through our platform. Because payments are processed online, there’s less reason to worry about where, how and when your worker will receive their payment.
At Better Caring, we want each person to enjoy the experience of living independently and accessing support whenever they require it. Paying privately for support means you can maximise your independence by directly connecting with workers and letting them know exactly what kind of support you require.
Even if you don’t receive NDIS funding, you can discover quality, flexible, affordable support from motivated workers in your local area. Search for workers in your community or sign up for free today to start directly connecting with workers.
