Please find attached a revised brokerage application form and guidelines outlining eligibility and process.
Applicants must be clients of a Specialist Homelessness Service.
Applications must address all sections of the form and show how the activity or goods will address the needs of the child as evidenced in their case plan.
All applications must be approved by the CRP coordinator.
Brokerage requests will be considered for children who:
- Have been assessed and have had a case plan developed by the referring support agency. Children’s needs can be case planned individually or incorporated into the family’s case plan. The State wide Wellbeing Proformas may assist workers to develop case plans for children.
Copies of assessments and case plans are not required, however a summary of the case plan is required as part of the application process.
- Have an identified need for brokerage as demonstrated by their case plan.
- Require support to engage and/or maintain their education, or require support to access social, recreational, health or support opportunities in their community.
- Cannot access any other financial support or can only access part of the funding required to meet their need (i.e. publically funded medical and support specialists, Schools Focused Youth Services, State Schools Relief, direct negotiations with schools and sporting clubs etc.).
