Cultural and Linguistic Diversity

If you are from a culturally and linguistically diverse background, the CALD Program can support you and the person you care for. The program also supports clients who may live alone, without a carer. The CALD Program can provide basic assistance that may assist you to continue living at home and access appropriate community care services.

Our staff are trained to understand your particular needs if you are from a different culture. We can provide advice, support and information if English is not your preferred language.
