Shopping assistance

From July 2021, Knox City Council no longer provides shopping assistance under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme.

Uniting Age Well now provides this service to residents in the City of Knox.

Escorted shopping services provide someone to help you with your shopping, especially with bulkier or heavier items.

Bill paying or a bank or post office visit can be included as part of the shopping trip.

  • over 65 years of age who wishes to request shopping assistance for the first time –  please contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422.
