Commonwealth Home Support Programme

“Funded by the Australian Government Department of Health”, The Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) is the entry level tier of the aged care system offering greater choice and more flexibility to older people. The CHSP aims to support frail, older people aged 65 years and over (50 and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) to live as independently as possible in their own home and community for as long as they can and wish to do so.

Hervey Bay Day Care & Respite Centre Inc delivers social support services to our senior clients; our centre provides a great environment for our clients to make new friends, share the stories and their individual journey with other people and be accepted and encouraged to actively participate. Lonsdale House recognises the value that our mature clients still have to offer; at Hervey Bay Day Care & Respite Centre Inc we have current vacancies available for people that are eligible for CHSP; if you are interested in attending our centre, please organise an appointment with our lovely office staff. Imagination is just the beginning.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support to people with disability, their families and carers. It is jointly governed and funded by the Australian and participating states and territory governments. 

To be eligible to receive individualised supports under the NDIS a person must meet certain access requirements. These include that the person must:

  • live in an area where the NDIS is available

  • meet the residency requirements (be an Australian citizen, permanent resident or Protected Special Category Visa holder)

  • meet the disability or early intervention requirements and

  • be under 65 years of age when the access request is made.

Requests for access to NDIS individualised supports are made to the NDIA. Those found eligible are known as NDIS ‘participants’ and usually remain eligible for life.

Hervey Bay Day Care & Respite Centre Inc proudly provides services under NDIS including;

  • Assist Personal Activities

  • Group/Centre Activities

  • Participate Community

  • Personal Activities High.


Our new services allow us to further tailor individualised support to each person accessing services from Lonsdale House; our support is able to be delivered in a group ratio and under 1-1 support when required. We are driven to meet the goals of each person funded under NDIS; we are able to achieve this through our flexible delivery model. Our activities provide a great opportunity to extend our clients capacity and core support needs in an environment that caters for an ever changing environment. 

NDIS has allowed us to extend our hours of operation and truly capture the needs of the people we support; we are committed to delivering excellence in all that we do and promote the importance of Person Centred and Choice….. 

If you believe in dreams, want to be empowered to reach your goals, have your contribution valued and be the change that you want to see…. Please drop in and see us at Lonsdale House….. a place where Imagination is just the beginning.
