Carers WA in the Regions

Practical and emotional support for family carers in every region of WA.

What support is available for carers in regional WA?

Carer Gateway is an Australian Government initiative for unpaid family carers in all regions of Australia. It provides a mix of free online, telephone and in-person supports, services and advice for anyone caring for someone with disability, a mental health challenge, a long term health condition, an alcohol or other drug dependency, or who is frail aged.

Services available include counselling, tailored support packages, emergency respite and online supports. In Western Australia, these services are delivered by Carers WA alongside our regional partners Helping Minds and Goldfields Women’s Health Care Centre.

Your local regional coordinator can assist with:

  • Carer support planning
  • Information and advice
  • Connection to support and services
  • Social and peer support groups

To access our support services call 1800 422 737 or request a callback by completing our online form here.

Please note: Services are free to access and do not affect any other state or territory carer services, young carer bursaries or other services delivered through My Aged Care or the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Policy and Systemic Advocacy in the Regions

Carers WA has compiled region-specific feedback and an action plan from a number of regions in WA. These reports are available here.
