HOW WE ARE FUNDED
Our business is not solely dependent on government funding. , with members contributing 17% of our total revenue and a further 17% being generated through our own fundraising activities and corporate partnerships. In addition we are supported by a large volunteer base, enabling us to leverage employee time by a further 20%.
We operate on a tight budget, with staff continually finding new ways to maintain a ratio of more than one hour of direct member engagement for every hour of paid staff employment.
Our approach gets great results but by focusing on activities and programs as appose to hours of care, our services fall outside the scope of revised government fee for service legislation introduced through the National Disability Insurance Scheme. This places some of our income at risk which could result in our members being at risk of being marginalised from the disability sector, despite having increased needs. We are therefore seeking further sponsorship from corporate benefactors and members of the public
