What is Individualized Funding?
Individualized Funding is an alternative way for individuals and families to purchase or create the unique supports they require. Individualized Funding puts the individual at the center of their support system, giving them control over every decision that affects their life.
How can BeConnected help?
BeConnected is an approved Host Agency with CLBC which means the funds allocated by CLBC for the purchase of individualized supports and services can be paid to BeConnected. As a host agency, BeConnected works in partnership with individuals and their families who receive Individualized Funding, to help them create the support they desire, give them maximum choice, and in doing so, coordinate independent contracts on their behalf.
For example, BeConnected will find, hire, and supervise the independent support contractors required on your behalf: creating, executing, and monitoring the necessary contracts to ensure the best supports and services are in place when needed. Individuals and families can be as involved as they wish. In its role as host agency, BeConnected is able to relieve families who receive Individualized Funding of the burden of being the “employer” of numerous support workers, allowing them to enjoy the benefits of Individualized Funding without having to take on the added administrative responsibilities.
BeConnected provides Host Agency services out of our Victoria Office to serve the South Island and our Duncan Office to serve the Central Island.For more information about Individualized Funding and BeConnected’s services as a Host Agency, please contact our Coordinators of Contracted Services.
