The Home and Community Care Program for Younger People (HACC-PYP) funds support services for people with disabilities.

At BRHS, HACC-PYP covers such things as:

  • Social support and community access, such as our Planned Activity Groups
  • Healthcare and rehabilitation services
  • Nursing and continence support
  • Carer support and respite
