Flexible Support Packages
Our Flexible Support Packages offer short term (up to 6 months) support for families who have a child with disability or developmental delay. These packages aim to reduce the pressure on parents and provide a range of flexible supports that meet the specific requirements of your child.
You may purchase specialised equipment or access additional services such as respite or assistance for your child to participate in everyday activities in the community such as playgroups and childcare.
Flexible Support Packages are funded by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD).
