6 Setting the target amount
6.1 When you create a Carer Profile Page, you will be presented with 3 options (8 hours of respite, 8 hours of cleaning or 8 hours of lawn/garden maintenance). All three options have target amounts attached to them that Caring for Carers Australia will do its best to raise for you to have One Day Off. The 8 hours of respite targets are based on the amount of support required (e.g. whether you need a single support worker (1:1) worker or two support workers (2:1) to care for your loved one) and when it is required (i.e. weekday or Saturday). One Day Off on a Sunday is not offered. The cleaning and lawn/garden maintenance targets are set at $550 per Carer.
6.2 The target amounts are based on the information you provide us. We are not be responsible for any errors in the information you provide us.
6.3 The target amounts are based on 8 hours of a support worker, 8 hours of cleaning or 8 hours of lawn/garden maintenance (using the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Price Guide hourly rates, as updated from time to time). When the NDIS rates change, the target amounts will be updated.
6.4 Caring for Carers Australia will raise the funds needed to pay for a support worker to look after your loved one, a qualified cleaner or lawn/garden specialist while you take a Day Off. The funds raised do not include any payment to the Carer.
6.5 The Website is set up to raise funds for care for one loved one, 8 hours of cleaning or 8 hours of lawn/garden maintenance. If a Carer has more than one loved one who needs care for the Carer to have One Day Off, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can assist in setting the target amount for more than one loved one.
6.6 If the target amount for a particular Carer Profile Page is exceeded, the excess will be applied to another Carer Profile Page. The choice of the Carer Profile Page to which funds are applied is in the sole discretion of Caring for Carers Australia.
7 Time limit to raise the funds
7.1 For the Carer to have One Day Off between 1 April 2019 and 30 June 2019, the target amount must be met by 31st March 2019.
7.2 If the target amount is not met by 31st March 2019, then Caring for Carers Australia may, in its sole discretion, elect to top-up the funds so it meets the target.
7.3 If the target amount is not met by 31st March 2019 and is not topped-up, the funds will automatically carry forward to the 2019 campaign. The funds can only be carried forward to the next year’s campaign once.
7.4 If the target amount is not met during the next year’s campaign, Caring for Carers may use the funds raised in its sole discretion.
8.1 When you donate to Carer Profile Page, your donation will be used by Caring for Carers Australia in accordance with these Terms & Conditions.
8.2 When you donate to Caring for Carers generally (and not a specific Carer Profile Page), your donation will be used by Caring for Carers in the proportions described in clause 6.3, where the Support Component will be used to ‘top up’ a particular Carer Profile Page’s funds if it would otherwise fall a little short. The choice of the Carer Profile Page to which funds are applied is in the sole discretion of Caring for Carers.
9 How the One Day Off works
9.1 When the target is reached, Caring for Carers Australia will use the funds to either pay for a support worker to look after the Carer’s loved one for 8 hours, pay a qualified cleaner or lawn/garden specialist while the Carer has One Day Off. The support provided will be based on the same parameters as the funding target (e.g. 1:1 or 2:1 support and a weekday or Saturday).
9.2 Support will be provided by an independent service provider engaged by Caring for Carers Australia. Caring for Carers Australia will use best endeavours to match the Carer’s loved one with the service provider described in the registration process if this option has been chosen, however this may not always be possible.
9.3 The Carer must take their Day Off between 1 April 2019 and 30 June 2019 unless otherwise agreed by Caring for Carers Australia.
9.4 Caring for Carers Australia will use best endeavours to arrange for support to be provided on the Carer’s requested day off. However, as Caring for Carers Australia relies on the availability of its independent service provider, the Carer may need to be flexible to have a Day Off on the day that care can be arranged.
9.5 If Caring for Carers Australia is unable to arrange for support to be provided prior to 30 June on a day acceptable to the Carer, then another time mutually agreed by Caring for Carers and the Carer will be coordinated.
10 Making a donation
