The Centrelink Assistance for Isolated Children fund is available for students isolated due to geographical location, special needs or circumstances.

If you have a student enrolled with DECV due to health issues, pregnancy, psychological difficulties or learning difficulties you may be eligible for financial assistance through Centrelink Assistance for Isolated Children under the Special need rules.

See their website at https://www.humanservices.gov.au/individuals/services/centrelink/assistance-isolated-children for details of eligibility and application requirements.

Thanks to one of our parents, Deborah Gray, for bringing this to our attention.
