Assistance with Care and Housing
The Assistance with Care and Housing (ACH) Program helps eligible clients remain in the community. Eligible clients are financially disadvantaged older people who are homeless or have insecure accommodation and are at risk of becoming homeless. The program helps clients obtain appropriate, sustainable and affordable housing and links them to community care services, where appropriate.
Services under the Program can include:
- identifying frail older clients with support needs;
- linking clients to suitable care options;
- linking clients to housing services;
- advocacy; and
- linking clients to other relevant services (e.g. Aged Care Assessment Teams, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities).
The type of assistance provided for ACH clients varies to suit the needs of the individual. ACH is a linkage program, not a program that provides ongoing care.
Who this service is for
Eligible clients are financially disadvantaged older people who are homeless or have insecure accommodation and are at risk of becoming homeless.
