Caring is not something anyone plans to do. It’s unexpected and can be hard. It’s important to remember that no one has to care alone. We offer a range of services to help lighten the load and support you in your caring journey.

Who is a carer?At some point in our lives, all of us will either require care or become a carer. Carers are unpaid family members, friends or neighbours who provide assistance with the tasks of daily living to someone who:
- has a disability
- has a medical condition (terminal or chronic illness)
- has a mental illness, and/or
- is frail because they are old (known as ‘frail and aged’)
Why CarersACT?At Carers ACT we are deeply passionate about impacting the lives of carers. We are great at partnering with carers through their journey, seeing and hearing carers where no-one else does, supporting and advocating for better outcomes and being there during the hard times.
