Warrnambool City Council is reviewing its aged and disability services.
During the review there will be no disruption to clients, families or staff of Council's aged and disability services, with all programs and services to operate as usual.
The review will report on Council's provision of services to help older people and people with disabilities continue to live independently in the community.
These services are funded through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and the State Government’s Home and Community Care for Younger People (HACCPYP).
The Commonwealth Government has sole policy and funding responsibility for the delivery of aged services and has announced a new national system that will be implemented from 1 July 2025.
Your survey response will help inform the aged and disability services review. A review report, including all feedback collected during the consultation period, will be presented at a Warrnambool City Council Meeting late in 2023. The review will enable Council to make a decision on Council’s future role and provision of aged care and disability services in the Warrnambool City Council municipality.
