Update on Carer Gateway Information Forums

As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia continues to grow and non-essential gatherings of more than 100 people have been restricted, Carers WA and HelpingMinds have made the joint decision to postpone the upcoming Carer Gateway Information Forums.

The Carer Gateway Information Forums that were scheduled to take place in Albany, Broome, Carnarvon, Exmouth, Geraldton, Fitzroy Crossing, Northam, Perth and Port Hedland will now take place at a later date. Both organisations are committed towards the ongoing safety and wellbeing of our carers and the people they are caring for, given the heightened risk status for many of this cohort.

Carers, service providers and health professionals can continue to visit our websites, social media channels and receive email communications to stay updated on Carer Gateway information in WA.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Carers WA on 1300  227 377.
