GIFSA in the media

Host family

Long term and short term support for a person with a disability, to maintain and develop independence in a natural family environment. GIFSA will collaboratively identify a host family or host individual, to make a life commitment to support the person with a disability. Supports will be tailored and designed in partnership with the person with a disability and the host family to ensure the needs of the person with a disability are met. The host family or host individual will be trained to match the person's individual needs. The focus of supports will be on assisting the person to achieve their desired goals with the host family, which are identified through person centred planning principles. GIFSA will promote and encourage the person to live the life they choose and will regularly review the services provided to ensure they are responsive to their changing needs. GIFSA will facilitate an agreement between all parties that provides a mutually beneficial outcome in relation to the financial contribution the person with a disability makes to the home environment.
