CFN offers a range of support services for people with a disability and their families and/or carers which are flexible and ensure that participants have choice and control over the support they need to thrive.
CFN’s support services and programs for people with a disability include:
- Social and Community Participation
- Short term accommodation support, in-home respite and school holiday programs
- Daily Living Support
Once an individual’s support needs and goals have been identified in their support plan, CFN will endeavour to match the right support worker/s to the participant who will ensure continuity of support and match the person they are supporting to access the right support services. Supported individuals will have the final say on who will be supporting them and what support services they engage in, in close consultation with the carer or family.
SOCIAL AND COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION
