Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)

Coolibah offers services available through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

If you need support with just a few tasks, such as cleaning, then you may be eligible. The programme is designed to aid those who need a low level of support to continue living independently and safety at home.

Domestic Assistance

We offer a range of domestic services and assist you with some of your household tasks.

These services include:

  • Cleaning
  • Ironing
  • Laundry
  • Unaccompanied grocery shopping
  • Meal preparation
Social Support

Maintain your social wellbeing, and your social life, with Coolibah!

Coolibah offers in-home social support and accompanied outings such as shopping.

We’ll get you out and about so you don’t miss that important appointment, a social event, or that special coffee date with friends.

Enquire how we can assist with support equipment – often with no financial contribution.  Talk to our team to find out more.
