Domestic Assistance, Home Modifications and Home and Garden Maintenance

The City of Mitcham’s Community Wellbeing team has changed the way we deliver services to our Community.

In response to ongoing reform and quality improvement in the aged and disability sectors, the City of Mitcham conducted a review of Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) services that are being provided to our Residents. As a result, Council decided to outsource domestic assistance, home modifications and home and garden maintenance and commenced a process to engage an organisation to provide these services on Council’s behalf.

Following a thorough tender process, the City of Mitcham has appointed Southern Cross Care (SA & NT) Incorporated to deliver domestic assistance, home modifications and home and garden maintenance for the Community on its behalf. The price for services offered by Southern Cross Care can be found below: 

CHSP- All Better Gardening and Home Maintenance: 

$12 per hour. 

CHSP- All Better Care and Better Home (Domestic Services):

$8 for the first session (40 minutes); and

$8 for every session thereafter (50 minutes).
