Community care offered to younger residents

Brimbank is currently accepting new clients for the Home and Community Care Program for Younger People program, funded by the Victorian Government.

This program is for people aged under 65 (and Aboriginal people aged under 50) who may require assistance due to physical and/or psychosocial functional impairment related to disability (for which they are not eligible for the NDIS), chronic illness or short-term health needs.

As part of the program, clients may be eligible for support with daily activities including:

  • Personal care
  • Dressing
  • Delivered meals
  • Preparing meals
  • House cleaning
  • In-home and community respite
  • Social support groups
  • Property maintenance and home modifications
  • Using public transport

The program provides support and services to assist people with disabilities to remain living at home as independently as possible.

To be eligible for the program, clients must live in the City of Brimbank, be under the age of 65 and not receiving National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) support.

You do not need to qualify for a Disability Pension or be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident to receive services.

For further information about this program and your eligibility for these services, please call 9249 4494 or email IntakeOfficer@brimbank.vic.gov.au
