Preferred Provider for the Continuity of Service (CoS) Program Announced
Wednesday, September 02 2020
Adelaide PHN announces that a consortium led by Neami National has been selected to deliver the Continuity of Service (CoS) Program services within the Adelaide PHN region.
CoS is an Australian Government initiative that began in 2019 to deliver a mixture of psychosocial support activities for clients who previously accessed support under Partners in Recovery (PIR), Support for Day to Day Living in the Community (D2DL) and Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) and who have been found ineligible for the NDIS.
Neami National and its consortium partners (Mission Australia, UnitingCare Wesley Bowden, Life Without Barriers and Community Access and Services SA) were selected as the preferred provider of the service by Adelaide PHN, which manages the funding on behalf of the Australian Government following a competitive tender process.
Supports delivered under this program will be predominantly group based, focused on building individual capacity, with additional targeted one on one support at times of increased need.
Neami will commence delivering the CoS Program from 1st October 2020. Adelaide PHN and Neami will work with the current CoS providers and clients to ensure a smooth and safe transition process to the Neami service.
