NDIS Information

The Parties agree that this Service Agreement is made in the context of the NDIS, which is a scheme that aims to:

  • support the independence and social and economic participation of people with a disability; and
  • enable people with a disability to exercise choice and control in the pursuit of their goals and the planning and delivery of their supports.

The supports described in this Service Agreement are reasonable and necessary supports specified in the statement of supports in the Participant’s NDIA current plan (under section 37 of the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013). e.motion21 will adhere to the National Disability standards.

  • The Participant’s NDIA plan is expected to remain in effect during the period the supports are provided; and
  • The Participant will immediately notify the Provider if the Participant’s NDIA Plan is replaced by a new plan or the Participant stops being a participant in the NDIA.

Cancellations and No-Shows

If the participant, family or carer agree there was an unforeseen circumstance that resulted in a cancellation, normal fee for service will be charged. For example sick days. This fee will be waived if e.motion21 is given at least 24 hours’ notice of an intended absence. This notice must be given in writing with an email to admin@emotion21.org.au

For planned cancellations at least 10 working days’ notice must be given to e.motion21, in which case no fee for service will be charged and NDIS funding will not be drawn down. This notice must be given in writing with an email to admin@emotion21.org.au

Changes to this Service Agreement

If changes to the supports or their delivery are required, the Parties agree to discuss and review this Service Agreement. The Parties agree that any changes to this Service Agreement will be in writing, signed, and dated by both Parties.

Ending this Service Agreement

Should either Party wish to end this Service Agreement they must give one months’ notice, in writing with an email to info@emotion21.org.au. If either Party seriously breaches this Service Agreement the requirement of notice will be waived.

Participants will be charged the full NDIS rate and only if their package allows partial funding by NDIS they need to cover the balance.

At the end of each term, e.motion21 will send the participant an invoice for those supports for the participant to pay.

The Participant will pay the invoice within 7 days from the date of issue. A late fee of $25 per term applies for payments made past this invoice due date.
