Carer Gateway is the Australian Government's national approach to providing reliable services, supports and advice for Australia's 2.65 million carers.
LiveBetter will manage the delivery of Carer Gateway across South Eastern NSW, Western NSW and Murrumbidgee. We will also work with our service delivery partners, The Benevolent Society and Mission Australia in the South Eastern parts of NSW to ensure you are supported.
The new supports are free to access for anyone looking after a family member or friend with disability, a medical condition, mental illness, health condition or someone who is frail due to age.

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.
