Show close time for other time zones
The purpose of this grant opportunity is to support service providers to coordinate and deliver select contemporary disability services to older Australians with a disability who were previously accessing services under the Continuity of Support (CoS) Programme. The Disability Support for Older Australians (DSOA) Program will deliver improved parity with the National Disability Insurance Scheme and deliver a more client-centred program through:
- funding for disability services being better aligned with market pricing and nationally consistent across states and territories;
- moving all clients to Individual Support Packages to refocus service delivery on individual client needs; and
- meeting the Commonwealth commitment to continue supporting DSOA clients with complex needs to live at home or in a supported accommodation and to access increased support as their needs change.
