Business Description

Disability Insurance Administration Services (DIAS) is a Cairns located NDIS Plan Management Provider established to provide personalised, independent Plan Management services to Queensland recipients of NDIS funding.

Being independent means they do not have any conflict of interest when providing their services.

Being closely associated with an NDIS Participant, They established DIAS with the understanding that Participants and their carers want to the retain the flexibility of choice when deciding who their support providers are, but they do not need the added time-consuming responsibility of managing their NDIS funding. Prior to establishing DIAS They worked both Nationally and Internationally in the financial service industry and held membership with CPA Australia and the Stockbrokers and Financial Advisors Association.

Having friends who are Participants of the NDIS and also carers for NDIS Participants being able to be a part of an independent Plan Management business gives me huge satisfaction.

They understand the need for people to have the flexibility to choose their provider of choice and the freeing up of time by not having to administer the funding, is the extra time people can spend doing more important daily activities.

Disability Matters has been working actively in the Tablelands community to provide help and understanding with quality disability support care since 1990. Formed in response to community need, the organisation was originally known as Tableland Respite Care Association. The name was changed in May 2016 to better communicate what the organisation is all about: Disability Matters to us.

Disability Matters offers disability support services to the Tablelands region and also an extended catchment area from Cardwell to Cape York.

 

Support coordination - Plan Management - Housing and accommodation

The Disability Matters Support Coordinator will enable an individual to build their capacity (and that of their networks) with the aim of independently managing their issues and supports whilst meeting their goals and exercising choice in obtaining supports that assist them in pursuing their own lifestyles

Disability Matters Support Accommodation
For those times when everyone just needs a break, we provide 24-hour support in accommodation at our Cook St house in Atherton. The house provides overnight care, 7 days per week. With up to four clients able to stay at a time, the house has built up a reputation of being a caring, supportive and enjoyable “home away from home” for people living with a disability.
Clients are encouraged and supported to participate in a variety of activities whilst at Cook Street, both indoors and outdoors. Some activities we offer at Cook Street include:
• Access to a sensory room
• Music sessions
• Craft sessions
• Fun days with BBQ’s and games
• Outings into the community and local attractions including Tinaroo Dam, Lake Eacham, local parks and whatever other activities or events are being held
Younger clients at the home often feel they have gained some independence away from their families whilst their parents have peace of mind knowing that their child is being appropriately supported.
Our support at Cook Street is based on a 1 support worker to 2 clients (1:2) ratio, however, we have the ability to scale down to 1:4 or up to 1:1.

Disability Matters - Supported Independent Living
Disability Matters manages supported independent living (SIL) houses where housemates are provided with 24/7 support. This is their home!
Supported independent living is a wonderful opportunity for people who wish to live their own life, have the company of a housemate/s and there is the comfort and reassurance that care and support is in place all day every day. Our support workers provide assistance with banking, shopping, domestic chores and skill development if and when required.
Disability Matters can source a home for those who are interested in pursuing this option. We will guide you through the NDIS pathway to gain the required SIL funding and if required also find you a compatible housemate.
If you are interested in SIL in the future, but not quite ready yet, we can place you on a ‘waiting list’ for when a vacancy becomes available in one of our existing houses.
