How does WayHome get paid?
Hosts and Co-residents
WayHome is only paid if an eventual agreement is entered between NDIS Participant and the supporter and then only those fees and charges allowed under the NDIS price guide rates and NDIS rules. These are paid from the NDIS plan.
Housing & Housing Providers
WayHome is not paid for any matching on the WayHome Platform.
All payments and fees are a matter between Housing Provider and the NDIS Participant.
WayHome may charge a fee for targeted matching in the future.
