Updated Tuesday, 25 August 2020
Can home services (child care, cleaning, gardening) still be provided to TAC clients under Stage 4 restrictions?
The TAC approves home services based upon recommendations of health professionals. The TAC will continue to fund home services approved for clients to meet their health, safety and recovery and/or support needs as a direct result of their transport accident.
The TAC does not issue worker permits for those impacted by current restrictions. Please visit the DHHS website for the latest government advice and information about worker permits and permitted workplaces and services.
