Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)

Commonwealth Home Support Program

The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) aims to support older people aged 65 years and over to live independently in their own home and community. The program provides flexible, timely services that are responsive to local needs. At Balwyn Evergreen Centre, our focus is to work with you, rather than doing things for you. CHSP ensures compliance with all relevant codes of ethics, industry quality standards and guidelines, to ensure that you receive high-quality services.

What CHSP services do Balwyn Evergreen offer?

Balwyn Evergreen Centre works with consumers to develop their care plan based on their support needs. We support our members to be safely independent, as much as possible. Support services are reviewed every 12 months to make sure they are meeting needs.

Balwyn Evergreen Centre provides a range of programs and activities that are funded by the Commonwealth Home Support Program.

What it costs

Balwyn Evergreen Centre receives Australian Government funding through grant agreements which allows us to provide subsidised services to our consumers.

Consumers pay a contribution or fee towards the cost of services. Clients are expected to contribute towards the cost of the services they receive if they can afford to do so. Clients will not be asked to cover the full cost of services and any fees must be agreed between the client and the service provider before services commence.

Under the CHSP, service providers are required to have a documented and publicly available Client Contribution Policy that aligns with the CHSP Client Contribution Framework.

Call Balwyn Evergreen Centre on 9836 9681 or get in touch to discuss your fees and options.


Our social programs are proudly funded by the Australian Government Department of Human Services. Although funding for this service has been provided by the Australian Government, the material contained herein does not necessarily represent the views or policies of the Australian Government.
