Individual Support Packages

Individual Support Packages are Disability Services funds that are allocated by the Department of Human Services to a person to meet their disability related individual support needs. The funds may be used to buy a range of disability-related supports chosen by the person to assist them to achieve their goals. Disability Services funding may complement existing informal support arrangements from family and friends and/or generally available community services.

Individual Support Packages enable people with a disability to:

• Direct the planning process to the greatest extent possible and make their own choices about how they wish to live their life
• Plan in a way that respects the needs of family members and carers and their role in the person's life
• Be assisted to identify goals and the way these can be achieved
• Explore supports that are flexible and wide-ranging
• Be included and fully participate in community life.

Individual Support Packages may assist people with a disability to continue living in the community by providing a range of supports to:

• Maintain independence
• Keep living in their own home
• Move to more independent living arrangements
• Learn new skills
• Participate in the local community.
