Fees and funding of community care services

Fees are set by the government and vary across the Cockburn Community Care programs. Services can be funded by the NDIS My Way program. WA NDIS services do not generally require client contribution fees and clients who are unable to pay fees cannot be denied services by agencies.

Please note: a number of agencies may also provide these services or similar. If Cockburn Community Care is your preferred service provider, please advise the assessor during the referral process.

Social Clubs

Cockburn Community Care runs a number of social clubs from its premises at the Jean Willis Centre in Hamilton Hill, which are different every day and cater for different groups with different needs and interests. The Centre organises activities and outings tailored for people with disabilities and can provide transport if required. The social club encourages people get out and about, maintain friendships, stay healthy and keep their skills.

The Kwobarup Social Club

The Kwobarup social club caters specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have a cognitive disability or physical impairment. The social club includes transport and meals and provides a chance for people to get out of the house, make and maintain friendships, pursue their interests and get some exercise.

NDIS My Way program

The cities of Cockburn and Kwinana are part of the WA NDIS program, which is funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme and managed by the WA Disability Services Commission.

Cockburn Community Care has a panel contract to provide these services to people under 65 years of age who have a disability attributable to an intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory or physical impairment or psychiatric condition. The impairments must be permanent and the support likely to be required for life.

For more information or referrals, please contact WA NDIS on 1800 996 214.
