Flexible Support Packages - FSP - change to provider 2019

Flexible Support Packages (FSPs) that target high risk and promote safety were introduced by Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to recognise family violence (FV) and the impacts on the health and wellbeing of women and children. 

From the 1st December 2019, Anglicare will manage and assess FSP applications in the Inner East and Outer East Areas of DHHS East Division.

The purposes of FSPs are for a rapid response to provide personalised, targeted assistance and to assist women and children living with violence in a crisis or post-crisis situation to achieve:

  • Safety and freedom from violence
  • Access to safe, stable housing
  • Financial stability
  • Family health and well-being
  • Economic, social and community participation
  • Independence

Practitioners can contact Anglicare on 9721 3688 or email EastFVFSP@anglicarevic.org.au for further information and application forms.
