The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has appointed Nexus Primary Health (Nexus) as the new provider to administer the Home and Community Care Program for Younger People (HACC-PYP) in the Shepparton area from 1 December 2018.

The HACC-PYP is a Victorian Government program which has been administered by Council for many years. With the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) roll out in Shepparton from January 2019, Council made a decision to withdraw from providing HACC-PYP services as a significant proportion of clients are expected to transition to the NDIS, resulting in a reduced program that is no longer viable for Council to deliver.
