SAJID ASLAM service delivery will be tailored to suit a client’s unique circumstances and details and be delivered by experienced and qualified professionals selected for their ability to develop positive, respectful and collaborative relationships and who apply contemporary and best practice approaches to therapy interventions. Services delivered to a client will be provided in an accessible and flexible way, where it is most appropriate for client’s including at their home or within another community setting. The amount of therapy and duration of services delivered to each client will be based on information collected by SAJID ASLAM about the client’s stated needs, preferences and goals and the therapist’s professional assessment. Service delivery will support clients to be part of their community, strengthen their informal supports and access mainstream services (health, education, employment etc.). SAJID ASLAM will offer clients coordinated and integrated service delivery working with a client’s other services and supports and providing multidisciplinary therapy services where required. Service delivery is provided on a fee for service basis, as outlined in the Fees and Charges Policy, appendix A and appendix B. SAJID ASLAM staff will work with clients to achieve the best value service delivery for their investment. Whilst SAJID ASLAM aims to provide a flexible service to clients, as noted in the Fee and Charges policy, where a client cannot proceed with a scheduled service, cancellation fees may apply.
SAJID ASLAM staff are responsible for ensuring clients feel comfortable, listened to and their experience valued. All clients, including Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from a culturally or linguistically diverse background, or people with communication difficulties should be treated with dignity and respect, and the needs, decisions and preferences of client’s, their families and carers prioritised in the provision of service delivery. SAJID ASLAM staff will apply consistent processes during service delivery, ensuring that clients are provided simple and easy information about their services in a way that suits them; given information in an unbiased and sensitive way so that clients can make informed decisions about the most appropriate services that can meet their needs; and ensure that clients are aware of the mechanisms for raising and resolving issues and concerns.
