Queensland Community Care Services

The Queensland Community Care program is funded by the state government. It provides basic maintenance and support services for eligible people aged under 65, or under 50 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, who live at home and whose capacity for independent living is at risk.

Queensland Community Care services are offered in your home or local community and may be provided by government or non-government service providers.
