Community Outreach Support
Home and community outreach support involves a support worker and consumer identifying their strengths, values and goals and then working together to achieve or make progress towards them.
Each person develops a clearly defined plan of areas they have chosen to focus on, based on their existing values and strengths. Our role is to help them achieve their goals
The amount of support varies depending on each person’s level of need and the funding program they are funded through.
Our Victorian outreach services are funded through the Victorian Government Mental Health Community Support Services/MHCSS) and the Federal Government (Personal Helpers and Mentors Service/PHaMS)
Community and group programs
We provide a variety of group programs in all states that bring together people receiving support from us around areas of common interest or need. This includes our own group programs, Flourish and the Optimal Health program.
These groups might be focused on health issues or they might address people’s goals or aspirations for the future. The common thread is that they are there to provide both guided and peer support to help people pursue their health and wellbeing goals.
We aim wherever possible to connect people with mainstream community programs to support greater community connection and independence
Community and group programs are funded by the Victorian Government (Mental Health Community Support Services/MHCSS) and the Federal Government (Day to Day Living in the Community)
The eligibility criteria varies for our different programs. Please contact this service to discuss whether our programs are suitable for you.
