Services for people with high support needs
The way people with disability are supported in NSW and more broadly across Australia is undergoing unprecedented reform, which will culminate in the full implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) by 2018.
In July 2013, the NSW Minister for Disability Services released the Living Life My Way Framework (PDF) and more recently Ready Together, which commit to expanded opportunities for people to exercise choice, flexibility and control over their supports, to build the skills necessary to plan and negotiate how their supports are delivered, and to use and manage their supports through individualised funding arrangements as we transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
As part of this commitment, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) has amalgamated the High Needs Pool (HNP) with the Attendant Care Program (ACP) program under new policy that enables people to have greater control and choice over their supports.
Both the ACP and HNP have been replaced by the Community Support Program (CSP). Support Planners will be available to assist participants to develop an Individual Plan and establish their CSP services.
