Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)

What is a Commonwealth Home Support Program?

The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) helps older Australians to access entry-level support services, to enable them to live independently, and safely at home.

CHSP works with you to maintain your independence, rather than doing things for you. 

Who can access a Commonwealth Home Support Program?

If you are an older person aged 65 years or above (or an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander aged 50 years or older) having difficulties managing at home, you may be eligible to access a Commonwealth Home Support Program.

An Aged Care Assessment (ACAT) is required to determine your eligibility for CHSP services.

To obtain an ACAT assessment, contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or visit
