Description

Integrated Carer Support Service: Regional Delivery Partners Consultation

The Integrated Carer Support Service (ICSS) is the critical support for over 2.7 million carers who underpin the health, aged, disability, palliative and community care systems.

The ICSS service delivery model relies on the establishment of a regional and local presence across Australia where carers would access services such as coaching, counselling, emergency respite, carer directed respite care and peer support.

RDPs form a critical component of the regional delivery of the ICSS where they will predominately be the first point of contact, and the primary source of information and assistance for carers.

RDPs will also play an important role in establishing and maintaining relationships with social, health, education, cultural and community groups, to understand regional needs, and promote awareness of the role of informal carers and the services available to them.

The Department of Social Services is seeking feedback from the sector on the proposed approach to RDP service areas; identifying any specific issues including whether there are suitably capable organisations with the capacity to form consortia to fulfil the role of a RDP. Discussion points include:

  • Key issues with the approach to structuring the service areas.
  • Capacity and capability of organisations to establish and manage a regional presence throughout a large service area, including the ability lead a consortia-based model, and undertake service area planning.
  • How to ensure the breadth and reach of services provided under the proposed service area models, including the incorporation of local service providers.
  • Are there any alternate RDP service area models that you think the Department should consider? If so, on what basis? Your statistical analysis and / or evidence base should be provided to support this.
