To deliver the program, local partners have been selected by FECCA to engage a 1.0 FTE Specialist Support Worker (called EnCOMPASS Connectors) to provide information and one-on-one case management to seniors from CALD backgrounds through a strengths-based and no-wrong-door approach. EnCOMPASS Connectors will support seniors regardless of level or complexity of need.
Local partners and their EnCOMPASS Connectors will also deliver a series of community development activities to build the knowledge and ability of their community in ageing, aged care and to support their seniors.
