Things to take into account when hiring a cleaner or a Gardner
1) Agree upon price
NDIS uses an hourly rate system for this service so that you and your service provider will need to agree on how much this is before starting the job. NDIS won’t pay any amount outside of the hourly rate, so any incidental costs will need to be built into this.
2) Set up a service agreement
Any service provider you are engaged in, it’s always a good idea to establish a service agreement with cleaner, gardener, or handyman. A service agreement is a simple written agreement that will tell how and when your service will be delivered and will protect you from any misunderstanding about the service.
NDIS prefer invoices not to be handwritten, but if you do it, then make sure that everything is clear and can’t be misinterpreted.
