As part of your home support assessment with a RAS to work out if you are eligible for services under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, the assessor will work with you to develop a personalised home support plan.

The plan will be tailored to your needs and help identify your strengths and your areas of difficulty, your goals and what you would like to achieve. The plan lets you and the assessor identify the types of support that will best suit you as you work towards achieving your goals.

This support may be provided by services, or may be support that's already available in your community to access. It may be things you can do yourself to meet your goals.

Your home support plan should be reviewed by your service provider every 12 months to ensure you are receiving services and supports that continue to be right for you.
