Assistance with Care & Housing

We offer Assistance with Care and Housing in the Nambucca, Bellingen and Coffs Harbour LGAs under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme.

All enquiries need to be made through the Macksville Office on 02 6568 2522.

The program aims to assist financially disadvantaged older people over 65 years and 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, to meet both their accommodation and support needs, enabling them to remain living in the community.

We provide:

  • Assistance and advice for people accessing housing services, real estate agents, referrals to financial and legal services.
  • Help with removal arrangements, settling in or negotiating to improve accommodation.
  • Linking to local community supports to improve quality of life.
  • Follow-up and short-term monitoring of the effectiveness of services provided.
  • Assistance with completing application forms for Public and Community housing providers and private rental accommodation.
  • Transport to property inspections (when staff are available)
  • Assistance with sourcing household goods and furnishings to support a person into new accommodation

This service is funded in part by the Australian Government and also has to comply with funding guidelines. Please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly staff for pricing and service delivery information.
