Talk to Us

Being a carer can feel overwhelming and draining, particularly dealing with ‘the system.’ We are here to help you find your way through the maze of services and support.

We know that the caring journey can change often and suddenly in some cases or slowly in others. We know that with each change, you have different needs and questions to feel in control of your caring journey.

We don’t tell you what you need to do. We listen, ask questions, and hear your context and offer services, supports and solutions based on what you’ve said. Solutions can include respite, peer support, advice and information, counselling or referral to other specialised services.

Freecall 9am-5pm Monday to Friday or submit anĀ online enquiry

If English is not your first language and you would like an interpreter, please tell us, or call the TIS National Interpreting Service directly on 131 450.

We can talk you through everything you need to know.

  • Carer Support

    Our local support programs can provide one-one-one information and support and connect you with other carers, groups, events and activities, so you can spend some time away from your caring role in a social environment.

  • Respite

    It’s okay to need a break from the demanding role of a carer. We can help you to explore options and plan flexible respite that best meets both your needs and the needs of the person you care for. Or provide options in the event of an emergency.

  • Counselling

    Talking to a counsellor can help you explore ways to deal with complex situations, and to balance caring with the rest of your life. Sharing your emotions can be hard, but it can make a huge difference.
