Capacity Management
Have you wanted to quickly check if a service is accepting new clients? Do you want to attract new NDIS funded clients, or clients for a newly funded service?
The HSNet Service Directory gives service providers the opportunity to display their service capacity using a traffic light system:

  • Green – appointments welcome.
  • Amber – call for availability.
  • Red – at capacity.

Services can also add additional instructions via a ‘free text’ field eg. Four week wait period applies, program hours available.

If you would like to display and manage your capacity information for one or all of your services please complete the Capacity Management Registration form (also available from the Capacity Management menu).

Broadcast Referrals
Referral enabled services will now be able to send a referral to 2 or more services with the same service type (eg. 2 or more accommodation services). Broadcast referrals assist the sending service to receive action for their referral quickly as multiple services are alerted to the client’s needs. Once a service accepts the referral, all other versions sent will be marked complete.

Financial Counselling | Wesley Mission

I would like to introduce myself and advise your network that I have free appointments available in the Illawara region for referral of clients who are in financial distress.

I have recently started work with Wesley Mission however I have six years of experience as a financial counsellor.

My new role is Government funded under Responsible Gambling Fund and our service provides therapeutic and financial counselling for people and/or their families with problem gambling issues. We are also available to work with vulnerable people who are at high risk of developing gambling addictions as a relapse prevention approach.

A financial counsellor is trained to assist your client see their financial situation clearly and ensure they gain a knowledge of all their options fully. We may also provide assistance with advocacy if we determine it would be useful.

The service is free, independent and confidential to clients who are in financial distress and would like to manage their money more effectively. There are face to face or telephone appointments available. Referral method is to give clients my work number to book an appointment.
