About the Commonwealth Home Support Programme

Commonwealth Health Support Program (CHSP Grant) is a service that offers entry-level support for seniors who are 65 years and above. The programme offers low-intensity supports such as domestic assistance, allied health and therapy services, respite care, transport facilities, social support, and nursing. The services provided cater to every individual’s personal goals, preferences, and activities that can improve their well-being and independence.

The CHSP is an important part of the government’s Aged Care initiative, and approximately 70% of all Aged Care consumers benefit from it. If you require additional information regarding the CHSP, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Fronto Advisory. Being one of the leading advisory companies in Australia, their knowledge of this subject matter is unmatched.

What is a CHSP Grant?

CHSP grant is the funding provided by the Australian government to the approved home care service providers for supporting their participants. Before you provide CHSP services, it is essential for you to apply for a grant. Fronto Advisory has helped countless providers with business setup and the CHSP application process.
