Supporting families needing In Home Care and the services which provide it in NSW & SA.

The In Home Care Support Agency is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.

Our role is to:

  • support families who were part of the old IHC program to move to the new program or find other education and care
  • determine which families are eligible for In Home Care
  • match families to service providers that have educators available
  • advocate for families
  • develop Family Management Plans and review them each quarter
  • work with services to ensure In Home Care is high quality and monitor it to ensure it is focused on educating and care for children
  • provide professional development and support for educators
  • promote the In Home Care program so that families that need it, know about it.

Essentially our role as the In Home Care Support Agency is to support families needing in home care and the services which provide it.

Our In Home Care Support Agency supports families and services in NSW and South Australia.
