Hidden carers in social housing project

Do you help out a family member or friend who relies on your support?

At some time in their lives, most people will help look after a partner, parent, child, relative or even a friend who has some kind of disability, health problem or mental illness. If this is you, you are a carer.

Carers NSW is an organisation that provides a range of services to support and represent carers. Whether you need help finding the right services for the person you care for or just need someone to talk to about the challenges of caring, you can contact the Carer Line on 1800 242 636.

Over the next twelve months, we will be visiting several locations in NSW to run events for carers living in social housing. These will provide you with a chance to find out more about the local support available to you as a carer. Over the course of the project we will be adding more information to this page, so make sure you keep an eye on this page to find out more.
