Temporary services for people in the ACT to discharge safely from hospital or remain in their homes while they recover from an illness, injury or other health issue.
The ACT Government’s Community Assistance and Temporary Supports (CATS) program provides temporary services for people in the ACT to discharge safely from hospital or remain in their homes while they recover from an illness, injury or other health issue.
