access and support

A free support service for ageing migrants and people with a disability navigating the Home and Community Care system.

This program offers short-term assistance to frail older people and people with disabilities from migrant backgrounds who are eligible for Home and Community Care, but are having trouble using these services because of language barriers.

 

How we can help

Our Access and Support program can:

  • help you navigate the system, understand which services are available and find out how to access them
  • help improve your relationship with service providers
  • assist you in identifying and expressing your needs when you go through an initial assessment
  • support the review process of your care plan
  • make referrals to other services on your behalf

 

Who can apply

These services can be requested directly from clients, family members, health professionals, community leaders or service providers.
