DCO has established the Community Support Coordinator Pilot Program which provides funding support to Defence community groups to enable the employment of a community support coordinator who will be responsible to coordinate the delivery of services and support of value to Defence families in their local community. Eligible Defence community groups will be identified through the existing Family Support Funding Program (FSFP) grants program. At the end of the pilot program period a permanent solution will be launched and administered by DCO.
The pilot program will run from 2016 through to June 2018 and during this period DCO will use information collected as part of monitoring and meetings with Defence community groups to create a national communication network for coordinators and committees.
