Funding needs to be in place prior to employing carers. You can register with us so you are ready once your funding has been established.
However if you are funding yourself we would be happy to talk to you about your needs and potential payment options.
No. Care Federation doesn't negotiate funding.
Individuals requiring care for any disability or medical condition who need carers can use Care Federation. We are also happy to talk with Case Managers, Allied Health professionals including Social Workers, Facilitators, and Parents/family members or anyone interested in assisting individuals and their families streamline the process of sourcing suitable carers.
We need to find out about your funding arrangements and do this by asking you to complete several forms. After this all that is required is letting us know who your carers are, determine what you would like to pay them, approving timesheets at the end of each pay period and sending them to us.
We are not a traditional care agency, however feel free to talk to us about your needs.

Once you are registered with Care Federation you can start immediately using your chosen carers. Carers will also need to complete some forms and ensure they have the required checks in place e.g. police check and working with children check, if required.
Timesheets can be scanned and emailed. We hope to introduce an online timesheet facility sometime in the not too distant future to provide you with more choice and will keep you updated.
