    Get advice, education and training to feel confident you have the knowledge and skills as a carer. Participate in workshops where you’ll get great information and resources.

  • Help at Home

    Get help around the house with domestic assistance for cleaning, laundry, gardening, and home maintenance.

  • Mental Health Support

    Get the support that’s right for you from individual counselling to family counselling, psychology, and dementia care.

  • Support Groups

    Join carer support networks to make connections with other carers who understand you and find new ways of managing and balancing your caring role.

Funding Choices

Already have your NDIS package?
The NDIS is available for people under the age of 65 years with permanent and significant disability. Whether you already have your NDIS package or need help transitioning to the NDIS, we can help.
INELIGIBLE FOR THE NDIS AND NEED HELP?
If you’re under 65 years of age (50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders) and have a condition that affects your ability to carry out daily activities and are not currently receiving NDIS support, then the Community Assistance & Support Program may be able to help.
Are you over the age of 65?
My Aged Care is the main entry point into the aged care system in Australia. It provides information to assist older people in their care and support services. Many carers don’t realise that they themselves are eligible for funding as well.
Privately funded services for everyone
Access our services without waiting. If you don’t qualify for government funding or want to access services while you wait for your government funding application to be processed, our services are available for you to purchase privately. We’ll tailor a solution to meet your needs.

Our carer services are proudly supported by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. Visit www.dss.gov.au for more information.

Let us provide you the best care so you can enjoy everyday life.
