Support services for older Canberrans, and for those with a disability, have continued to grow with the amalgamation of Home Help with Handy Help.

Mary Porter officially launched Home Help Service ACT at a recent function at the Weston Creek Community Centre attended by 300 guests, many of who were clients of the service.

"With our ageing community, it is vital that we provide services that allow people to continue living independently in their own homes and the amalgamation of these two organisations will result in an improved service for clients", Mary Porter commented.

Those who have questions, or who wish to access the service, may call 62873777.
