Community Aid Service

The Community Aid service provides assistance for people aged 65 years or older (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander 50 years or older). The service supports older people so that they can remain in their own homes and participate in the community.


Community Aid is an essential service to help clients maintain their independence, connect with others and avoid social isolation. Our team of dedicated Community Aid volunteers provide support services, including:
