Acronym: 
CC(NESB)

Aims to assist people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds through respite, home help and personal care services.

Community Care Projects have the primary purpose of ensuring that the most ulnerable and dependent members of the community, whose needs cannot be adequately addressed through the existing service system and who require case management, are provided with appropriate, flexible and co-ordinated support and assistance through a comprehensive case management approach.

When possible and where required Community Care (Non English Speaking Backgrounds) Inc will provide an interpreter and clients will be matched with support workers who can speak their own language (linguistically and culturally appropriate).

This service aims to assist (at any one time) 50 people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds in the Greater Launceston area.

Respite support for carers, home help and personal care in the client's own home as required is also provided.
