Community Assistance and Support Program
Northside’s Community Assistance and Support Program (CASP) will provide an individualised service that is grounded on the principles of strength-based and person-centered approaches and will focus on working with the client to explore their skills and capacities, plan for their goals for the future and help identify areas of further development.
This program is aimed at people under the age of 65 years who require home and community support for daily living activities due to a short-term or episodic health issue.
This may be:
- An illness that comes and goes
- Short term health or mental health conditions
- A need for post hospital care and support
- Unable to access support through the NDIS
- Are the unpaid carers of those listed above.
To receive services under CASP, you cannot be receiving identical home and community care support services from another government program. If you are a current NDIS client, you may be eligible for CASP if you require additional support arising from a temporary health issue e.g. recovering from surgery.
Northside CASP Coordinators work one-on-one with you for goal planning to provide the coordination of services including both internal support (e.g. in home supports and social inclusion) and external community supports (e.g. linking with housing services, mental health clinical services, linking with general practitioners).
To refer yourself or someone else to the CASP program please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Northside reception at 02 6171 8000 and ask to speak to a CASP staff member.Download CASP Flyer
