Everyday living support
Support for children, young people and adults with disability may be accessed within mainstream services in your local community. Some people with disability and their family may also require specialist support from therapists, case managers, community nurses, behaviour specialists or dietitians to help improve their independence, quality of life and wellbeing.
ADHC provides funding to a number of other agencies to deliver specialist supports such as therapy, community nursing, case management, behaviour support and dietetics services. For information and support in accessing the most appropriate service to assist in meeting your needs contact your local FACS District. ADHC also provides a range of these services directly through Community Support Teams which are based across NSW.
In NSW, support for children, young people and their families may be accessed from a range of agencies in the local community. This builds the capacity of local communities and develops strong support networks around children and young people with disability and their family that can extend throughout their life. It also builds the capacity of local communities to meet the needs of people with disability and those who support them.
Young people and adults with disability may require support with self-care tasks and activities of daily living to continue living in their own home and community and maintain their independence.
ADHC funds a range of in-home support services including the Community Care Support Program (CCSP). For information and support in accessing CCSP services contact can made with the ADHC Information and Pathways teams in your district or the HACC Development Officer in your region.
Young people and adults with physical or neurological disabilities who require significant personal care support to live at home may apply for the Community Support Program. For information and support in accessing these services contact your local FACS District.
