ABOUT US

Can Assist Blue Mountains was formed in 2007. Our volunteers raise funds to support patients treated or recovering from cancer and their carers, at a time when they may have reduced income and increased expenses. No one is alone and Can Assist Blue Mountains is ready to provide assistance for expenses such as utility bills, medical and household expenses, accommodation and in home assistance.

Areas Serviced: Bell, Berambing, Blackheath, Blaxland, Bullaburra, Faulconbridge, Glenbrook, Hawkesbury Heights, Hazelbrook, Katoomba, Lapstone, Lawson, Leura, Linden, Medlow Bath, Megalong, Mount Wilson, Mount Irvine, Mount Riverview, Mount Tomah, Mount Victoria, Springwood, Sun Valley, Valley Heights, Warrimoo, Wentworth Falls, Winmalee, Woodford, Yellow Rock

If Karen and her husband were living in any other state or territory in the country they would have received a higher rebate – in fact, up to $72 a night higher.

On average, a resident of country NSW will receive $42.32c less a night than the rest of the country. What a disgrace!

Thank you Dr Joe McGirr MP and Helen Dalton MP for helping to bring this injustice to light.
