We recognise and want to support you as a carer in our community. This online hub offers:

  • information about the services and programs we provide
  • local carer groups
  • other resources that can support you.

We use 'carer' to describe someone who provides care to another person who has a disability, a mental illness, is older or has an ongoing medical condition (including terminal or chronic illness or dementia). This care is typically more than expected in their usual role as a family member, friend or neighbour, and is unpaid.

To learn more about carers, visit Carer Gateway.
