About Carers ACT
Carers ACT is not for profit organisation. We provide services to support the needs of unpaid family and friend carers and the needs of the people they care for. We also work closely with government and other support organisations to improve the lives of caring families and individuals throughout the ACT and Southern NSW.
Unpaid family or friend carers provide unpaid care and support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic illness, terminal illness, drug or alcohol issues, dementia or who are frail.
Carers ACT also provides advocacy support to kinship and foster carers for children and young people who are unable to live with their biological parents.
