Community Care Guide:

The Flinders Shire Council Community Care Program aims to assist the frail and aged, people with a disability and their carers, and people living with a mental illness who need support services to live independently in the community. Our services help prevent premature admission to nursing homes or other long term residential care facilities.

Flinders Shire Council Community Care offers the following Programs: 

  • CHSP (Commonwealth Home Support Program)
  • QCCS (Queensland Community Care Services)
  • HCP (Home Care Packages, Levels 1, 2, 3 &4)
  • VHC (Veterans Home Care)
  • MOW (Meals on Wheels)
  • DS (Disability Services)


Our organisation provides services to the entire Flinders Shire district as well as some services to the Richmond Shire. We believe our clients have the right to be involved in the planning of their services. However, to be involved in this service you must understand the above programs.
This guide aims to provide you with information regarding our services, your rights and responsibilities, our organisation’s privacy and confidentiality policies and our complaints procedures.
