Your Life, Your Choice Funding
Starting in 2012 Department of Communities—Disability Services have introduced a model of funding called Your Life, Your Choice (YLYC) which is a self directed model. Self-directed support is a funding approach that enables people with disability and their families to have greater choice and control over the disability services they receive. It is a key part of preparing Queenslanders for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Depending on what type of funding you currently have, you may be able to transfer to a Your Life, Your Choice model.
QSSS is an approved Host Provider for YLYC.
