Commonwealth Home Support Programme

As you get older, everyday tasks can become more difficult. Even though you need help, you may still want to live at home. Asking for help doesn't mean losing your independence or moving out of home.

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

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

Is CHSP right for me?

Eligibility for this program is based on your support needs and age. 

If you’re having trouble with everyday tasks and feel that a little support could improve your health and wellbeing, CHSP could be right for you.

To be eligible for this program, you must be aged:

  • 65 years or older (50 years or older for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people), or

  • 50 years or older (45 years or older for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people), on a low income and homeless, or at risk of being homeless.

An aged care assessment will determine your eligibility for the CHSP, including specific services.
