The Australian Government is investing $550 million into services for carers.
New services include face to face counselling, planning assistance and financial packages.
If you support a family member or friend who has a disability, mental health condition, chronic health condition, terminal illness, or is frail aged, then these free services are for you.
Wellways is your first point of contact for Carer Gateway services in Queensland, South West Sydney and Nepean Blue Mountains.
