The CoS service

Continuity of Support will provide support for clients who have previously accessed services under Partners in Recovery (PIR), Support for Day to Day Living in the Community (D2DL) and Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) as at 30 June 2019 who are ineligible to receive services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

  • Increase personal capacity, confidence and self-reliance
  • Increase social participation
  • Streamline access to appropriate services
  • Provide flexible and responsive support at times of increased need
