Access & Support – Aged Care & Disability

Access and Support services provide short term support for the elderly, younger people with a disability (who are not eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme), and their carers, who need help to stay at home and who:

  • have diverse needs or circumstances
  • need help with understanding the range of support services that may be available
  • need help with accessing services.

An Access and Support worker may be able to help you access services if you, or someone you are caring for, is:

  • an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
  • culturally and linguistically diverse
  • living in a rural or remote area
  • financially or socially disadvantaged
  • a veteran (including spouse, widow or widower)
  • homeless or at risk of becoming homeless
  • lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex
  • a Care Leaver (Forgotten Australian, Former Child Migrant or Stolen Generation)
  • a parent separated from children by forced adoption or removal
  • living with dementia

No fees are charged for Access and Support services.
