3 Your Life Your Choice (YLYC) self-directed support was launched by the Premier and Minister for Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services in September 2012 YLYC enables people with disability and their families to have more choice and control over their disability supports and services YLYC introduces self-direction to Queensland YLYC helps people with disability and their families get ready for more choice and control under the NDIS Your Life Your Choice

4 Industry Partnership

5 “Self-Directed support is an approach which enables people with a disability and/or their family to have choice and control over their disability supports and services to achieve positive outcomes in their lives. By using funding and other resources to plan, purchase and select supports and services that suit individualised needs, people with a disability and/or their families become active participants in the design and delivery of their disability support.” Your Life Your Choice

6 This policy direction is consistent with other jurisdictions across Australia Self-direction is not new YLYC is not new funding, it is a new option to change the way services are delivered through increasing choice and control. Changes to the Disability Services Act (2006) Ruling from the Australian Tax Office and Department of Social Security that where this funding is paid directly to a person or family it is not included as income. The funding is paid quarterly in advance. Currently there are 109 approved host providers and over 1050 participants self directing under Your Life Your Choice. Vision to embed people in community through purchasing services in more typical ways. Your Life Your Choice
