Fees and Charges
In – home
Fees for Professional Services are calculated based on time spent by Service Provider providing the above fore mentioned services multiplied by the relevant hourly rate.
The hourly rate is applied to work done at Client’s site. Additional time spent disposing of ONE (1) carload of charity donations is included in the onsite rate. The current standard rate for Decluttering Diva’s professional services is as per the current NDIS guidelines. Additional staff are charged at the same rate.
Any additional time spent by Service Provider, either to dispose of additional unwanted items, assistance with selling of items, research/ purchase/delivery of organising solutions, or other, will be negotiated with Client as required.

Decluttering Diva understands that some clients will require some additional support between sessions through phone calls, texts or emails, either with the client and/or their support coordinator.
This will be billed at 15 min increments.

Mon- Fri 8am – 6pm

NEW POLICY AS OF 1ST OCTOBER 20023

This falls within the 2023 NDIS price agreement guidelines.
We do, however, understand that emergencies happen and therefore Decluttering Diva reserves the right to waive fees for special circumstances as determined by management. To do so is at the sole discretion of management and does not in any way alter or waive any portion of this Agreement.

We will send you a session reminder via text 24-48 hours before your session.

We will also collect relevant personal information such as NDIS number, NDIS Fund information, medical notes, emergency contacts, as well as our own session notes and photos to document progress. This information will not be shared with anyone outside Decluttering Diva without your approval.

We look forward to working with you and helping you on your journey to become less cluttered and more organised.
