HACC-PYP  provides support for people 65 and younger (50 and younger if Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander) with disability whose capacity for independent living is at risk.

Services are targeted to 65 and younger (50 and younger if Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander) with moderate, severe or profound disability and their unpaid carers. These services help people live as independently as possible in the community.
Intereach delivers HACC-PYP in the Campaspe Shire.

We will identify if you are eligible for a HACC assessment

If eligible and after completion of the HACC assessment we will link you in with the appropriate supports under the HACC/PYP program. 

What is HACC-PYP?

HACC-PYP funds organisations to deliver a range of activities (supports) that assist eligible clients to remain as independent and healthy as possible in the community. These activities can include: 

Community Care Services: Supports include domestic assistance, personal care and respite, property maintenance such as repairs and gardening and minor home modifications to assist people managing mobility issues to move safely about the house.

Meals: Both home delivered meals or in community settings provide a nutritious, appetising and culturally-appropriate main meal.

Eligibility for HACC-PYP 

  • Individuals who are under the age of 65 years, or under 50 years of age for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and who experience difficulty carrying out the tasks of daily living are eligible to apply for HACC-PYP supports. 
  • NDIS participants are generally not eligible to access HACC-PYP services as it is the responsibility of the NDIS to fund a participant’s reasonable and necessary disability-related supports. 
Is there a cost?

There is no cost for a HACC-PYP assessment, however your financial details are discussed during assessment to determine what level – ‘low, middle or high’ – income bracket you are in to determine the cost of services provided.
