Carinity Communities offers friendly, flexible support to people with disability and their families in the Scenic Rim and Somerset communities. As a host provider for the Queensland Government’s ‘Your Life Your Choice’ self-directed support framework, we will support you to plan and control your funding with as little or as much help that you need.

How does it work?
Together, we will develop a support plan that meets your preferred level of self-direction, your current disability support needs, and work towards your goals and visions for the life that you want to live.  The plan will detail supports and services to be provided, who will source, who the service provider will be, and who will pay for each support or service.

How do I deal with payment?
You may choose to organise and pay for all of your supports; or allow us to manage some or all supports and pay the service providers for you.

What is the support plan?
The support plan is a living document that will change with your individual circumstances.  You may have an initial support plan with a goal of moving to independent living.  The next support plan may then focus on accessing in-home support services to enable you to realise your vision of an independent good life. Together we will review your plans as your needs change.  The initial plan will be reviewed after the first month and then less frequently as required.
