About caring

Over 48,850 people in the ACT provide unpaid care and support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, drug and alcohol issues or who are frail aged.

Most of us will need care and support at some point in our lives and many of us will become carers.
