Get the support you need to remain independent

5th December 2019

There are a number services in your local community that can assist you to remain independent. You’ve worked hard all your life – now is the time to take advantage of these services that can keep you safe and living your best life.

Most councils provide a range of services, community support, and recreational programs to assist in maintaining independence and quality of life at home and in the local community. Many of the council services are free and eligibility for other government-funded programs are usually determined by an assessment.
