AM I ELIGIBLE?
Tamworth Meals on Wheels are available to those people funded by the Australian Government under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) and eligibility is determined by My Aged Care national entry point.
Meals on Wheels are available to carers of older people or those with a disability. The Carer Gateway is a new national website and phone number to help carers access information and advice and connect with services in their local area. It is the first stage of the Australian Government’s Integrated Plan for Carer Support Services. Carers can use the Carer Gateway online at www.carergateway.gov.au or calling 1800 422 737 (Mon to Frid, 8am to 6pm).
Meals on Wheels are also available to people with a disability and those who are not eligible for funding assistance, but who wish to purchase meals on a full cost basis.
