What is Home Assist Secure?
Home Assist Secure is a Queensland government program which aims to provide assistance with some of the practical housing related difficulties experienced by older people and people with disabilities who wish to remain living in their home.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible you must be:
- 60 years of age; and receiving a Australian Government allowance or payment; or any age receiving a Disability Support Pension, and
- be a home owner or live in rental housing.
What assistance is provided by Home Assist Secure?
- Offer subsidised assistance with labour cost for each service (conditions apply).
- If any work is over $1,000 (labour and materials) then the work will be ineligible for Home Assist Secure assistance.
We are funded to carry out minor home maintenance jobs for what already exists within the home.
We do not subsidise new additions or installations (eg. new powerpoints).

Open Monday to Friday from 8am to noon and 1pm to 4pm.
