The Department of Health and Aged Care has provided the PHN funding to pilot the Supporting Recovery program. Supporting Recovery has two components,
- Specific DFSV trauma-informed care coordination and case management (Local Care Teams)
- Specific DFSV trauma-informed mental health services
Both aspects of the program focus on recovery and healing for adults and children who have experienced DFSV.
The successful provider/s will provide specific DFSV trauma-informed care coordination and case management and/or specific trauma-informed mental health services to victim-survivors of DFSV as part of their longer-term recovery.
Services are expected to be established by July 2024.
With high rates of DFSV in Moree and the Central Coast regions, the PHN nominated these regions as pilot sites in the grant application.
This funding forms part of a suite of initiatives to reduce all forms of DFSV and supports the implementation of the National Plan to End Violence Against Women and Children 2022-23.
An Expression of Interest Online Information Session will be held Thursday, November 2nd 2023, 'click here' for more information.
