Continuity of Support Programme – Direct Funding Model – Individual Support Packages (ISP) 27 July 2017
The CoS ISP Direct Funding model is one of the three models under the CoS Programme. This model provides continuity of support for eligible CoS Clients seeking increased autonomy and independence. Although the broader CoS Programme began on 1 December 2016, direct funded clients will only begin as CoS clients from 1 January 2018.
Under current state-managed arrangements, a range of State Governments are currently paying some clients a cash budget directly into a bank account created for managing their own disability supports and services to meet their specific needs.
The Department of Health on behalf of the Commonwealth is seeking applications for the National delivery of the CoS ISP Direct Funding model to replace the current state-managed arrangements. The successful applicant must have the capacity to deliver this model across 7 states and territories to 127 older people with disability.
