The Australian (Commonwealth) Government is changing the way that Aged Care services are planned and delivered, impacting Councils’ ability to provide Aged Care and HACC PYP services into the future.
In July 2019, Council endorsed exiting the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) and the Home and Community Care Program for Younger People (HACCPYP - Under 65) program by July 2022, due to significant reforms introduced by the Commonwealth Government relating to the provision of aged care services including home based aged care.
From 30 June 2022, Council will cease delivering services under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), Home and Community Care Program for Younger People (HACCPYP - Under 65) and Support for Carers program.

The State Government has appointed Uniting Vic.Tas as the new service provider for HACC Program for Younger People. Uniting is a community service organisation delivering services and programs across Victoria and Tasmania, and is locally known as Uniting Gippsland.
