We can also refer you to other agencies if you need extra assistance that can’t be provided by Uniting.
Federal Government funding helps Uniting provide cost-effective services to older people, people who are living with a disability and carers of older people and people with disabilities. As a not-for-profit provider, we can also offer discounts on a fee-for-service basis to older people who do not meet the government funding criteria.
