Supporting families needing In Home Care in NSW & SA

In Home Care

In Home Care is a type of education and care for families that are unable to access family day care, out of school hours or centre based day care because of their family’s specific needs. In Home Care provides an educator to care for children in the children’s own home for families.

Are you eligible for In Home Care?

It is the role of the In Home Care Support Agency to advocate on behalf on your family. If you are eligible for In Home Care, we will be the conduit between your family and the Service Provider to ensure the needs of your family are met.

Not sure if you are eligible? Families must meet the following criteria:

  • Children of individuals eligible for Child Care Subsidy
  • Families must demonstrate that other childcare options are not available or appropriate, and must also meet at least one of the following criteria:
  • The family is geographically isolated from other types of approved child care, particularly in rural or remote locations
  • The parents or carers are working non-standard or variable hours, outside normal child care service hours.
  • The family has challenging or complex needs.

Challenging or complex needs mean:

  • a child with additional needs or a disability whose early childhood education and care requirements cannot be catered for in another approved child care setting, or through other government funded or community-based services
  • a family where a parent is undergoing treatment for a serious illness
  • other complex family situations that prevent families from accessing other approved childcare types.

If you believe you are eligible for In Home Care contact us for more information or fill in the Make a Referral form.
