Managing My Plan

At Senses Australia we put you in control. We encourage you to determine the amount of services and support you receive.

We are committed to listening to you and supporting you to determine how much or how little information and control you want over the management of your services.

You may choose to manage a little or the whole lot. We will support you in whatever decision you make.

Managed By Senses Australia

At Senses Australia we can manage your entire service for you. This includes:

  • Managing your funding.
  • Recruiting the staff you require.
  • Paying your staff and all other administrative requirements, i.e. managing staff leave, sick leave, insurances and replacement of staff when required.

We coordinate your service and provide ongoing support and training for your staff. However, no matter how your service is managed, you still remain in control. You ultimately make the decisions around who supports you and what the service looks like. Senses Australia will keep you informed and involved at all levels to ensure that you remain at the centre of everything we do.

Senses Australia deals with the funder, takes on responsibility for the payment of wages, PAYG payments and returns, and provides support around other administrative requirements to you as the employer.

Co-Management provides a number of different ways that you can pay for your support workers. Your support worker can be employees, independent contractors or volunteers depending on what you require.

Self-Management

At Senses Australia, Self-Management is where you take responsibility for the management of all of the service except for dealings with the funder and maintenance of public liability insurance.

Self- Management provides a number of different ways that you can pay for your support workers. Your support worker can be employees, independent contractors or volunteers depending on what you require.
