Advice for CHSP Social Support Group providers
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, there are new restrictions on non-essential gatherings and visits to vulnerable groups. From 23 March 2020, all non-essential gatherings are suspended for four weeks.
If you provide Social Support Groups and group activities, you should suspend them for four weeks. You can continue to support clients by re-directing their funds to other non-face-to-face activities and support services.
Please communicate any change to clients and their carers and families as soon as possible.
CHSP service providers now have complete flexibility to re-allocate up to 100 per cent of their funding between their funded service types in 2019-20 and 2020-21. Providers may only use flexibility provisions to transfer funding between already funded services.
