Description

Family Options NASC is a regional Needs Assessment & Service Coordination (NASC) service that is responsible for the co-ordination of supports for children with short term health related needs or children with long term, chronic health conditions. Children aged 0 - 16 years within Auckland, Counties Manukau, Northland and Waitematā District Health Boards are eligible for services via Family Options NASC.

Family Options NASC aims to enhance and optimise the care of the children and their families/whānau in their community by participating in and supporting an integrated model of community paediatric care.

 

If a child's needs are as a result of a disability they should be referred to their local Disability Support Services (DSS) NASC.

If a child's needs are as a result of an accident they should be referred to ACC.

Referral Expectations

Referrals can be made to the Family Options Needs Assessment & Service Coordination (NASC) service via the following:

  • e-Referral
  • email: familyoptionsnasc@adhb.govt.nz - if e-Referral is not available (a Referral Form must be completed)

All referrals will be assessed for eligibility by the Family Options NASC Team.

A NASC Support Plan must accompany referrals for the Family Options Short Term Supports Programme (Homebased Respite Care - HRC). Once assessed for eligibility a Service Provider will be identified and Carers/Support Workers will be allocated.

The Family Options NASC Team will carry out a Needs Assessment for referrals to the Long Term Supports - Chronic Health Conditions (LTS-CHC) Programme. Once the Needs Assessment is completed a Service Provider will be identified and Carers/Support Workers will be allocated.
