Practical support for family carers in every region of 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.
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.
