At GLCH we ensure that people with a disability are able to make choices about their service and support arrangements and are provided with the best possible advice about their options.

Individual Support Packages (ISP)

Individual Support Packages are funds that are allocated to a person to meet their disability-related support needs. The funds may be used to buy a range of disability-related supports chosen by the person to assist them to achieve their goals.

For eligible people (those who are in the process of applying for or who have already been given an ISP) we can help with:

  • Planning, preparation and application for an ISP
  • Case Management – planning and working with you to ensure your needs and goals are met
  • Service Coordination –  helping you manage your involvement with your services in accordance with your funding
  • Funding Administration – paying relevant invoices and providing the necessary financial reports to you and the Department of Human Services (DHS)

Please note: for more information about ISPs, eligibility and applications, please contact the DHS on 1800 783 783 or visit their website at www.dhs.vic.gov.au/for-individuals/disability/individual-support-packages/
