FOCAS supports several program types funded through Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC). Until individuals have their approved National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan activated by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) a person in receipt of one of the packages below is able to utilise our services.
A fee for service arrangement can also be considered.
We can support you in any of the following funding packages:
- COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION

We specialise in providing support for the self-management of funds to ensure every individual has the control and choice over their life in every possible way. Highlights are to self-direct your goal development, manage your own planning, staffing, funding and budgeting, administration, and engagement in your community. Commonly referred to as the Self Managed Model.
