Access & Support Program The Access & Support Program will provide short term, individual support to Home and Community Care (HACC) eligible people who need help to access HACC services, and other services if required due to their diversity. This service will be client-focussed where meeting the needs of the client is the priority. Diversity can be defined as (but is not limited to) cultural and linguistic diversity, people living with dementia, people who are financially disadvantaged, people living in remote or isolated areas, people with mental health issues, people at risk of or experiencing homelessness, diversity in sexual orientation and age. Eligible clients may have different needs ranging from a single HACC service or the full range of HACC services, but in all cases must experience access difficulties to HACC services due to their diversity. The Home and Community Care (HACC) Access & Support Program is a new program jointly funded under the HACC program by the Victorian Department of Health and Commonwealth Government.
