The purpose of a support plan under the Acute Support Package (the Package) is to:

  • record the services DVA and the recipient have agreed will be funded
  • track the family’s progress over time
  • track how much financial support has been provided over time.

A recipient can only access Package activities and supports through an approved support plan. Without a support plan that has been approved by a delegate, there is no basis to make payments for support and services. Services cannot be funded prior to the implementation of a support plan.
