4. Claiming Process:.

    • These non-labour costs should be claimed against the relevant activity-based transport support item.
    • The worker’s time can be claimed at the agreed hourly rate for the relevant support item for the total time the worker provides support to one or more participants, including time spent accompanying and/or transporting the participant.
