In July, the Federal Government began the rollout of a new national carer support services system through the Carer Gateway. This system will become the main way carers can access services and supports. It will not affect other supports for carers delivered through My Aged Care, the NDIS or state and territory governments.
The rollout began with new online services from July and will be followed by a rollout of direct services across regions in September. To find out more, go to the Carer Gateway website.
