Continuity of Support Program

The Commonwealth Continuity of Support (CoS) Programme has been set up to ensure that older people over the age of 65 with disability who are not eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will still be able to access support services.

Eligibility for the CoS Programme is based on an individual’s circumstances and criteria and will be available for pre-identified clients and service providers.

The CoS Programme will ensure that:

  • older Australians who are receiving state and territory-managed specialist disability services are supported to receive similar services to those they received before the change.
  • services for clients will not need to change and people will not need to move.
  • continuity of support arrangements will allow clients to continue to receive services.
