Carer Support

The Australian Government is investing $550 million into services for carers.

New services include face to face counselling, planning assistance and financial packages.

If you support a family member or friend who has a disability, mental health condition, chronic health condition, terminal illness, or is frail aged, then these free services are for you.

NWRH is a member of a consortium of organisations that will be delivering these services in Queensland, South West Sydney and Nepean Blue Mountains. Other organisations in the consortium are Dementia Australia, Little Dreamers, selectability and Wellways.

Please register your interest in the new Carer Gateway Support Services by completing the expression of interest form below. You will be kept informed of the expanded Carer Services, when the services will be available and how you will access the services.

If you know of any carers who would benefit from receiving Carer Services, please encourage them register their interest by sharing this page.

Carer Gateway is a national service funded by the Australian Government.

Carers can continue to access support through their current service providers until the new Carer Gateway Service Providers start delivery services in April 2020.
