Adults with disabilities

We offer a range of services for young people with a disability and their carers as part of our Home and Community Care Program for Younger People.

The program provides support for younger people with disabilities whose capacity for independent living is at risk and:

  • are under 65 years of age (or under 50 for individuals from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait background).
  • have functional limitations affecting their ability to manage day-to-day activities
  • need support to live independently at home, or while out in the community.

Services are targeted to people with moderate, severe, or profound disabilities and their unpaid carers.

For older people with a disability see Home support services for seniors and older people 

Services available

  • showering and dressing
  • meal preparation
  • occupational therapy
  • creating a safe home environment.

How to access services

Fees

Fees are based on:

  • the services you require
  • your income
  • your capacity to pay (services will still be offered even if you are assessed as having no capacity to pay). 

Next steps

  1. When we receive the referral, a Council Intake Officer will visit you at home to talk about your needs and goals.
  2. If you are eligible to receive services, a support plan will be created that includes your goals and support preferences. 
  3. A Council Intake Officer will then contact you to discuss your support plan; any costs involved; and a start date.
