About the Queensland Community Support Scheme

The Queensland Community Support Scheme (QCSS) provides support to people who, with a small amount of assistance, can maintain or regain their independence, continue living safely in their homes, and actively participate in their communities.

 

You may be eligible for the QCSS if you are under 65 years of age (or under 50 years of age if you identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander) with:

 

  • A disability (and are not eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme)

  • Chronic illness, mental health or other condition, or

  • Circumstances that impact your ability to live independently in the community.

What kind of support can Queensland Community Support Scheme provide?

 

The Queensland Community Support Scheme (QCSS) can provide you with support to access your community, including:

  • shopping or going to the bank or the doctor

  • Recreational activities

 

The QCSS can also provide support in your home to help you with things like:

 

  • Domestic activities like meal preparation, cleaning and household chores

  • Personal care, such as showering and dressing

  • Basic home maintenance like mowing, cleaning windows or helping you with your garden.

 

How do I apply to access QCSS?

It’s easy. To apply, contact the QCSS Access Point on 1800 600 300 or email QCSSaccesspoint@ozcare.org.au. You don’t need a referral.
