Carers ACT

Carers ACT

At some point, most of us will either be a carer or will need one. Caring can be a rewarding role, but it can also be exhausting, stressful and financially crippling.

What we do

Carers ACT is a not-for-profit community organisation that supports carers - those people who in an unpaid role look after loved ones with a disability, chronic illness, mental illness, or who are frail aged. Our services include: information and advice, counselling, respite, support groups, courses and social activities for carers. We also work closely with carers to advocate for systemic change such as improvements to income support, housing options and access to services.  Through our Disability Services we also provide direct support to people with disability and are an NDIS registered provider.  Carers ACT provides services throughout the ACT and South East NSW.

What carers say

We do make a real difference to carer's lives. Here is what some of them said in a recent client survey: 

"I can't begin to express what your help means to my mother and me. My mother's health is a burden but your help has really lightened the load. For that especially, I thank you." 

"Your motto of being understood, connected and supported applied strongly to my experience." 

"You lowered my anxiety levels with the kindness and advice you gave." 

"My counsellor was wonderful. Her words and encouragement helped me understand what I was going through and how to work myself out of how I felt and basically get on with my life."
