Social Support Programs
Are you wanting to engage in social activities with other members of your community? PCLC has a variety of programs that will support you in maintaining an active social life, learning new skills and making new friends.
All of our programs are aimed at improving your wellbeing, maintain your independence, remain at home longer and give you the freedom to do the things you’re passionate about.

PCLC’s Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) services are supported by the Australian Government Department of Health. The subsidy programme does not fund the full cost of the programs with each participant needing to pay a small contribution.
Our Intake Officer will discuss the cost of the programs at your initial
appointment, before you start a program. Special consideration is available to people experiencing financial difficulty.
Please call us on (03) 9510 7052 or write us an email on email@example.com for more information.
CHSP helps senior 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.
Before you can access government-subsidised aged care services for
the first time, you need to apply for an assessment. Using the online application is quick and easy and will only take 15 to 20 minutes to complete and can be accessed via the My Aged Care website.
It’s the same form to apply for all types of care and support – including help at home, short-term care, and social support programs.
You can complete the application yourself or on behalf of a family member or friend. If you’d like to set up an ongoing representative, you can also do that here.
There are three parts. The first checks you are eligible, the second captures your details, and the third confirms who the assessor should call to arrange the assessment. You will need your Medicare card and enough time to complete it.
You can call us for more information on (03) 9510 7052.
