Background

On 8 May 2023, SWSPHN was notified of a successful grant submission as part of the Department of Health and Aged Care (DoHAC) Supporting Recovery Pilot Program.

Overview of Procurement

SWSPHN is seeking to commission an eligible organisation to establish and deliver the Supporting Recovery Pilot Program. The organisation will deliver psychological therapies, in particular FDSV trauma-informed mental healthcare services, to victim-survivors located within our region.

The supplier will establish and maintain a consortium of key FDSV services within South Western Sydney to ensure an holistic service is delivered in partnership with FDSV victim-survivors, key advocates, advisory groups, and family, domestic and sexual violence service providers.

The service model will align with the DoHAC’s Model of Care, Supporting Recovery Pilot Program. It is a prescribed model which is part of the Australian Government’s National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022–2032.
