CQ Home Assist

CQ Home Assist 
CQ Home Assist Secure is a program jointly funded by State and Federal Governments. It provides services, such as minor maintenance, for older people and people with disabilities who wish to remain living in their own home.


In Central Queensland the program is delivered by Rockhampton Regional Council into the local government areas of Central Queensland including: Rockhampton, Gladstone, Central Highlands, Livingstone and Banana Shires. A central office is located in Rockhampton.

Services offered include:

  • free information and referrals
  • subsidised assistance to eligible clients
  • maintenance, repairs and minor modifications
  • assistance with the engagement of tradespeople, planning of future work and engagement of contractors


Home Assist Secure services are available for residents aged 60 years and over, people of any age with a disability, or indigenous people over 50 years of age.

To receive subsidised assistance for work in your home you must:

  • hold a current Commonwealth Government pensioner concession card and receive a regular eligible pension payment or be deemed eligible through a My Aged Care assessment
  • be unable to make use of alternative forms of assistance such as Veterans Affairs, family or friends.

CQ Home Assist Secure does not undertake maintenance or repairs that are considered to be the responsibility of the landlord (lessor) under the Residential Tenancies Act.
