Individualised and Enhanced Individualised Funding
Enliven provides Individualised Funding (IF) services to clients who are eligible to receive Home and Community Support Services or Respite Services, funded by the Ministry of Health.
In the Bay of Plenty, this service is referred to as Enhanced Individualised Funding. IF supports clients with paying for and managing disability support services themselves.
The funding can be used for personal care, household support, community involvement and activities, respite care, and items or programmes that support the management of a disability. IF clients are able to select their own support staff and receive their funding allocation annually instead of weekly, allowing them to spend money on significant items. Enliven also provides support around payroll, invoicing, support plans and contracts.
Enliven evaluates its IF service through an annual, online, client survey. This report summarises the results of the 2020 survey.
