Consumers are required to pay a small contribution for the support they receive from Sydney Region Aboriginal Corporation for home support services, if they can afford to. A schedule of the fees will be provided to you at your Commencement Meeting. You can at any time contact the office for an up to date schedule of fees.
Our fees are revised annually with consideration to your ability to pay. We will advise you of any changes.
You are most welcome to discuss your contribution level or any changes to it with us.
We recognise that the circumstances of some people may make it difficult to pay the contribution for support. If you are experiencing difficulties, you can request a contribution reduction by completing a Contribution Reduction Form. In assessing your request, we consider your income, household circumstances and any other special circumstances or hardships that make it difficult for you to pay. You will be advised of the result of your request within 15 working days.
