Did you know 1 in 8 people in this community has provided care to a friend or family member in the last two weeks?

Many people don’t see themselves as a carer – just a mum, dad, sister, son, spouse or friend – but anybody can be a carer at any time, and any age.

As a local service provider, you meet these carers every day in the work you do; they play a vital role in the recovery and wellbeing of your patients and consumers.

Local team offering local support

Carer Gateway is a national support service funded by the Australian Government. It offers emotional and practical support and services to anyone in a caring role. Wellways has been entrusted to deliver Carer Gateway services in your community and has invested in a team of highly skilled workers who live and work in the region, offering carers local knowledge and local support.

Flexibility for carers

Carers have limited time and their caring commitments often stop them from seeking support. That is why we have worked hard to offer a variety of ways for carers to connect directly with the team, delivering support:

  • Face-to-face,
  • online, and
  • over the phone.

This flexible approach ensures carers can be supported to manage their daily challenges, reduce stress, plan for the future and ultimately improve their wellbeing in a way that suits their busy lives.
