The Community Assistance and Support Program (CASP) aims to enhance your health and wellbeing, and facilitate your independence and participation in the community.
CASP provides you with support if you are finding daily living activities difficult due to a health issue. This health issue may be one that comes and goes or is short-term. CASP also supports your carer, if you have one.
These support services can help you to stay well and, where possible, prevent you from suffering a decline in health or needing to present to hospital. When you do go to hospital, these services will help you to return to your home safely following your stay.
Services can include domestic assistance, gardening, personal care, social support, social groups and transport.
To be eligible for CASP you must live in the ACT, be under 65 years and require home and community support for daily living activities due to a health issue.
Eligibility for CASP includes:
To receive services under the program, you cannot be receiving identical home and community care support services from another government program.
CASP cannot provide long-term, high level care or specialist mental health services.
The ACT Government funds CASP through the Community Services Directorate.
