Comorbidity treatment service model evaluation

Funding sources and issues

Page last updated: August 2009

Twelve services provided information about funding sources. Unsurprisingly, services reported that the largest part of their funding is provided by Commonwealth and state/territory governments. Of the four services that listed self-generated funding, three are part of large parent organisations, while one is a small Indigenous organisation. Philanthropic trusts and other non-government funding bodies contribute to a very small extent (see Table 12 below for detail).
