New Consumer, Family, Carer and Community Paid Participation Policy
The Mental Health Commission has recently undertaken a review of the Consumer, Family, Carer and Community Paid Participation Policy. Changes made as part of the review have been endorsed and the updated Policy is now live on the Commission's Website. Read the updated Policy here
There were a number of minor changes made to clarify the intention of the policy. For your information the key changes include:
- Change of name from Consumer, Family, Carer and Community Paid Partnership Policy to Consumer, Family, Carer and Community Paid Participation Policy;
- Increasing the payment rate from $35 (Active Participant rate) and $70 (Advisor rate) to $37.50 and $75.00 per hour respectively; and
- The offer, purchase and provision of retail vouchers has been removed from the Policy. However external consultants engaged on behalf of the MHC may purchase and provide retail vouchers in line with the guidelines in the Policy.
If you have any questions regarding the Policy, please contact the Engagement Team on: Engagement@mhc.wa.gov.au
