Can home services (child care, cleaning, gardening) still be provided to TAC clients under Stage 4 restrictions?
For information relating to the latest government announcement and what this means for your business visit the DHHS website and access the document, 'Guide for business - stage 4 restrictions'.
Note: We continue to fund home services for TAC clients to meet their health, safety, recovery and/or support needs when required as result of their transport accident injuries and recommended by a health professional.
