Mildura Rural City Council will transition out of delivering Aged and Disability home support services, with the intention for this process to be completed by June 2023.

Councillors formalised the decision at its May 2022 Ordinary Council Meeting, following a three-month consultation period with staff, clients and the wider community, and significant age care industry reforms.

There will be NO IMMEDIATE CHANGE to service delivery between now and mid-2023, with Council committed to seeing out its existing contracts until a transition plan has been developed and implemented.

Council will work closely with the State and Commonwealth Governments to ensure a smooth transition for clients.

Our transition plan consists of services ceasing with Council on the following dates:

  • Home and Community Care – Program for Younger People (HACC-PYP) services by 1 February 2023 (All HACC-PYP clients will receive their services through SCHS as of 1 February)
  • Brokered services by 31 March 2023
  • Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) services by 30 June 2023

Council is working closely with the Commonwealth and State Government and brokered Home Care Package providers to ensure a smooth transition for clients.
