Shopping Support Service

Newtown Neighbourhood Centre (NNC) has two types of shopping services for Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) eligible clients. This includes the frail aged and their carers living in the Inner West local government area. It is a basic support service for people still living at home who no longer drive and have difficulty accessing public transport. NNC takes great care to ensure the shopping services are safe and comfortable to meet your needs.
For a small fee services include:
  • Door-to-door bus service with assistance carrying bags on and off the bus into your home. 
  • Door-to-door car service with assistance shopping and carrying your bags. Trips other than Marrickville Metro may be available. On occasions list shopping may be provided for short periods of time to existing shoppers.
When: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
Where: Marrickville Metro
For referral to our services contact My Aged Care and ask for Newtown Neighbourhood Centre Social Support on telephone 1800 200 422.
If you require assistance with accessing services you can contact the Shopping Coordinator and they will assist with the referral process.
