Carers are in a particularly vulnerable situation as they and the people they care for are generally more susceptible to infection and the logistics of day to day life are already hard. If you are struggling to cope during this time, we encourage you to contact the Carers WA counselling lines on 1800 007 332 (8.30am – 4.30pm – Carers WA welcome mobile users to leave their number for a counsellor to contact them).
If you are worried you may have come into contact with COVID-19 please call the Corona Virus Hotline on 1800 020 080 which is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
