Sector Support, Development & Training


The Sector Support, Development & Training (SSDT) Project is an Australian Government project funded through the Department of Health, Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

The aims of the project are to support the Aged Care Sector in our region which encompasses South West Sydney (Bankstown, Fairfield, Liverpool), Macarthur (Campbelltown, Camden, Wollondilly) and Wingecarribee Local Government areas and to provide support to our elderly residents who may wish to enter the My Aged Care System in order to receive CHSP services that will enable them remain living independently at home and in their community.

The SSDT Project is able to provide subsidised training to both paid and volunteer staff who work within CHSP. Our training workshops are designed to meet the specific needs of the industry, fees for training are heavily subsidised and sometimes free, in order to provide equitable access to quality training for all staff.

SSDT Project staff meet regularly with local service providers through our regular Ageing Forums in order to determine industry needs and to ensure that we are able to deliver training, information, presentations and workshops on the current issues happening within the ever changing Aged Care CHSP space. We share industry news and updates with other providers in the community sector by facilitating regular Ageing Forums, sharing information and actively participating in various other events within our funded regions.
