About our programs


In some areas, we offer support to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander community members through our Outreach Workers and in other regions we work with the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health teams to deliver services.

We may help you manage your condition better, provide support around quitting smoking or help you to get active.

ITC program

Formerly known as the CCSS program, the Integrated Team Care (ITC) program is a free program consisting of Care Coordinators and Outreach Workers who can assist clients with:

  • understanding their chronic health condition and how to manage it
  • connecting with a support group
  • arranging home help
  • accessing medical services
  • understanding their care plan and medical jargon
  • accessing some medical aids for chronic conditions

Please refer to your region to learn how to access the program.
