From 6 April, Commonwealth Carer Respite Centres (CCRC) will be replaced by a new national carer support network called Carer Gateway.
LiveBetter has managed the CCRC across Central West NSW for more than 20 years, and more recently in the Far West regions of NSW. We are delighted to be continuing our support of carers across NSW as a Carer Gateway delivery partner in the following regions:
South Eastern NSW
Over the years, CCRC has provided information, referral and short-term planned and emergency respite care to carers of someone frail, with a disability, or a chronic illness. A carer is someone who provides practical and emotional support to a relative or friend who is frail, has a disability or a chronic illness, helping them to continue living in their own home and community.
Carers can continue to access support through the CCRC on 1800 052 222 until the Carer Gateway launches on 6 April 2020. From 6 April carers will access information, peer support, counselling, respite and other supports by calling Carer Gateway on 1800 422 737.
It is important to note that carers registered with CCRC are not automatically transferred to the Carer Gateway. Carers will need to call Carer Gateway to register on or after 6 April.
