Carer Service Information Forums go online

As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia continued to grow towards the end of March, Carers WA and HelpingMinds made the joint decision to postpone scheduled Carer Gateway Information Forums. With more and more of the community turning to online methods to access information we have chosen to turn the forum PowerPoint into a video that carers, service providers and health professionals are able to digest in their own time.

You can access the video via YouTube here and a Frequently Asked Questions document through our website here.

As an easy reference guide, a handout has also been produced to aid in the transition to Carer Gateway services.

Should you have further questions about the Carer Gateway, please contact Carers WA prior to 6th April to answer these queries by emailing info@carerswa.asn.au or calling 1300 CARERS (1300 227 377). After Monday, 6th April please direct your queries to the Carer Gateway 1800 422 737 number where you will be able to choose to speak to a Carers WA Carer Support Planner who may be able to answer your question/s.
