Carer Gateway is the Australian Government's national approach to providing reliable services, supports and advice for Australia's 2.65 million carers.

Am I a carer?

Anyone can become a carer at any time - through the birth of a child who has additional needs, as a result of a loved-one’s accident or illness, if someone close to you has an addiction or a long-term health condition, and sometimes because the people we love simply get older. Whatever your circumstance, Carer Gateway is there to support you. Meet some of the people who provide care.
