Capacity Building (CB) funding is allocated across nine support categories, with each category being aligned to your goals. These supports enable you to build independence and skills.
The support categories include:
- Coordination of Supports
- Improved Living Arrangements
- Increased Social and Community Participation
- Finding and Keeping a Job
- Improved Relationships
- Improved Health and Wellbeing
- Improved Daily Life Skills
- Improved Life Choices
- Improved Learning
Funding can be used flexibly to purchase any approved individual support that falls within the chosen category. However, you can't combine funding across multiple categories. This is because each support category will align with a specific goal.
For example, if you had a total budget for Capacity Building of $2,500 made up of $1,000 for Improved Relationships and $1,500 for Improved Learning, you can't combine your funds to spend the total budget of $2,500 on Improved Learning.
Bedford can offer support across most of the CB categories through our range of tailored training, employment, and community access services.
