MCCSA Submissions – Commonwealth Home Support Programme

Some of the proposed changes in the Commonwealth Home Support Programme such the social support group fees have the potential to be very detrimental for South Australia’s CALD communities. MCCSA and members of its CALD Ageing Alliance have worked together to produce this response. 538 CALD community members from the Italian, Greek, Dutch, German, Croatian, Ukrainian, Chinese and Vietnamese communities responded to a survey to provide evidence of the benefit of social support groups and 470 people signed a petition calling for a review of fees for social support groups. For more information please read the following three responses;
