Community Support Coordination Program

The Community Support Coordination Program (CSCP) provides funding to enable the employment of a Community Support Coordinator (CSC) within an organisation.

The CSC assists in the delivery of services and support to Defence families in their local community. The CSC is expected to:

  • be the point of contact at the organisation for Defence families
  • be responsible for the establishment, implementation and development of services and programs to enhance the wellbeing of Defence members and their families within the community.

In order to qualify for CSCP funding the organisation must:

  • be a legal entity
  • be an incorporated not-for-profit organisation
  • provide a balanced mix of community development planning and activities
  • be available for at least as many hours as the CSCP provides CSC funding
  • demonstrate the capacity and capability to manage a paid employee and Commonwealth funds
  • agree to participate in Defence facilitated networking during the funding period and other compliance requirements outlined within the guidelines.
