What the Like Family travel time policy?
Social Carers do not get paid for the time they spend travelling to or from a booking
If the Social Carer agrees to use their own car during a booking to assist you in accessing the community, you have the option to pay them $0.80 per kilometre to cover the vehicle costs, including fuel.
Kilometres covered start from when they pick you up and drop you off, this means there is no cost for Social Carers to travel to and from the booking.
It's important to discuss who will cover costs and the amount before the booking takes place, we suggest these conversations happen during your initial Meet and Greet.
