How does it work?

We will be looking to deliver activities across all areas of our city. Activities should:

  • be good value for money
  • meet existing or emerging community needs
  • show regular participation and positive feedback (if delivered before)
  • be held in line with our terms and conditions.

We will give preference to providers based in Logan. If you’re looking for a venue for your activity, try one of our fantastic community centres or parks.

As part of the Live Well Logan program, you may receive:

  • A service provider rate of $20 per hour. You can also charge up to $5 per participant, per session (which you will retain).
  • A travel subsidy for eligible applications of $20 per activity.  To be eligible, you must deliver activities in our regional suburbs (and not live in the area). These include Flagstone, Greenbank, Jimboomba, Mundoolun and Yarrabilba.
  • Reimbursement of a part of your venue hire. Cooking activities may also have part of the cost of ingredients reimbursed.

Invoicing and reporting

Each Live Well Logan activity runs in three month blocks. At the end of each block, you will be able to lodge your invoice along with your registration forms and reporting.

It's our policy to pay invoices within 14 days of the invoice date. We cannot pay until you've given us all your reporting and forms, so get those to us as quick as you can at the completion of the block!
