Information for Carers

Carers are usually family members or friends who provide support to children or adults who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition or who are frail aged. Carers may care for a few hours per week or all of every day.

The carer association worked with carers, community organisations and the Australian Government to produce these resources for carers with funding from the Department of Health and Ageing.
