Due to the ongoing nature of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Australia, Cancer Council SA are following the Department of Health Guidelines and have implemented measures and precautions to ensure the health and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and people that we support. Given this, the Practical Support Program has been suspended until further notice. Please continue to check this website for updates on when the program will recommence.
Treatment for cancer can sometimes cause the day to day tasks of living to become difficult and overwhelming for patients and their families.
The Practical Support Program provides short-term practical relief for people under the age of 65yrs with cancer, where treatment is making it difficult to manage day to day tasks. We can also help you find relevant community services that may be able to assist you.
For people over the age of 65yrs, we would suggest accessing government funded services through My Aged Care.
