CoS aims to provide a better quality of life for participants by building personal skills, resilience and confidence and facilitating social inclusion and connection.

Who can access the program?

CoS provides ongoing support to people who were accessing services as at 30 June 2019 under Partners in Recover (PIR), Day to Day Living program (D2DL) or Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) and who are found to be ineligible for the NDIS.

Participants in CoS can access the following services through WCS:

  • individual assistance with referral to services on issues such as housing, finance, vocation skills, accessing affordable or free food
  • responsive individual support during times of increased need such as ensuring access to clinical mental health or psychological services
  • a peer/social groups program, delivered mainly from our centre, which is close to the Woden Bus Interchange
  • activities and opportunities for social connection, such as art and craft, mindfulness, yoga, independent living skills, games and activities or physical exercise
  • information sessions on financial counselling, Recovery College, advocacy services or Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) services
