Support for carers
If you are looking after someone with a disability, a medical condition, mental illness or a person who is frail due to age, support is available.
Carers can get a wide range of help, including counselling, peer support groups, respite care, home help and equipment through the Carer Gateway.
You will be connected with an Australia-wide network of service providers. They will talk through what you need and help you to find local services and support in person and online.
