We have services to support people that are aged, have a disability and those who care for others. Services are available for eligible residents within the City of Charles Sturt.
Services can include spring cleaning, shopping support, basic home maintenance, social activities, transport and respite. These services can help people stay in their own homes and avoid early admission to residential care. Staying in your own home can greatly improve quality of life.
City of Charles Sturt receives funding from the State and Commonwealth Government to provide these basic services.
Assistance for Under 65s
Assistance may be available for people under the age of 65, receiving a Disability Support Pension (not receiving NDIS funding).
Complete a referral form and return it to Council. We'll be in touch to discuss your needs.
If you are under the age of 65, receiving a Disability Support Pension and require assistance, you can complete a referral form. For this service you must not already be receiving NDIS funding.
Recognising our Community
Do you know an older resident or someone on a disability support pension who lives in the City of Charles Sturt and does amazing things every day? Do you feel it would be great to recognise them in some way?
The Community Care section at Council receives funding from the Government to run the Home Assistance program which helps older people and those on a disability support pension to stay in their own homes.
As a part of this program, we would like to showcase some of these amazing people in our promotional material, but need your help to find them.
Please call Deb or Cynthia on 8408 1373 to discuss further.
