Family and Community Services (FACS) Housing Services are offering a new service.

Clients and their support workers can now apply for housing assistance over the phone and no longer need to fill out the paper application forms. We’re committed to improving our products and services and we believe that this phone service will make applying for housing assistance a much simpler process for our clients.

The housing applications by phone service will be available in the Central Coast District from the 8 June 2016 and is slowly being introduced across NSW. An online application form will also be available in early 2016 and we will be in touch with more information about that closer to the time.

To make sure that as many clients as possible benefit from the phone service, we need your support to promote the use of the service and make use of it with your clients who need to apply for housing assistance. Your clients simply need to call 1300 HOUSING to begin their application and you can assist them in this process. To ensure that the process is as simple as possible, please have your clients’ personal information with you when you call, including their Medicare number and Centrelink number. This will help us verify their identity easily and give a fast outcome to their application.

Aboriginal Home Care have been on a stressful journey over the past 3 months moving from operating as a Government service provider to becoming a Non Government service provider. This journey has not been an easy transition for staff and clients of Aboriginal Home Care but we have made it, our staff and clients have been very patient and loyal in travelling that journey with us and I thank them all for doing so.

Over the past few weeks I have heard the rumour making the rounds, My staff and I are trying our best to nip the rumours in the bud as they happen” Aboriginal Home Care no longer exist” “Aboriginal Home Care have folded and closed there doors on the communities” We are still here…my staff and I are trying to get to forums, interagency meetings, community events etc. to show people we are still operating.

The most concerning is over the last few days I have been approached by community members, and clients on the Central Coast very concerned that it was announced a meeting held last week “Aboriginal Home Care are no longer operating”,  this has caused angst and concern for our clients and Elders.

The only change that has occurred for Aboriginal Home Care is:

Daramulen Aboriginal Home Care are now operating under our new company – AUSTRALIAN UNITY HOME SERVICES, we are no longer connected to Ageing Disability and Home Care (ADHC).

We are now known as - AUSTRALIAN UNITY HOME SERVICES, Daramulen Aboriginal branch

AND

Daramulen Aboriginal Home Care Service – branch and outlets can be located in Gosford, Cardiff and Taree, Daramulen are still providing important services to our clients and communities.
