Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Access and Support Program

Supports you to access the services you need to stay living at home, active and connected to your community.

Access and Support services provide assistance to older people (50 and over for Aboriginal people) eligible for Commonwealth Home Support Program funding, younger people with a disability (under 50 for Aboriginal people) eligible for HACC Program for Younger People funding, and their carers, who need help to stay living at home and:

  • Have diverse needs or circumstances
  • Need help to understand the range of support services that may be available
  • Need help to access services.

If you or someone you are caring for is Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and has trouble accessing services, an Access and Support worker may be able to help you.

This service is available for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people who reside in Melbourne’s northern or western suburbs.

 

What will it cost me?
