SNHN is seeking suitably qualified and experienced organisations to apply to deliver innovative and creative approaches to providing Continuity of Support Services in the Northern Sydney region through a Request for Proposal process, with services to commence from February 2020. The focus of the service is people with a severe mental illness who are currently accessing services under Partners in Recovery(PIR), Support for Day to Day Living in the Community(D2DL) and Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) and who are ineligible to receive services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). As PIR, PHaMs and D2DL services will cease operation in the Northern Sydney region in June 2020, the CoS service will provide ongoing psychosocial support for these clients.
Aims of Continuity of Support Services for people with severe mental illness:
- To provide ongoing psychosocial support to people with severe mental illness who are currently receiving PIR, PHaMs and D2DL services are who are not eligible for the NDIS
