As of today, Thursday 12 August 2021, Carers Australia will be moving to a remote working environment as a result of the snap lockdown in the ACT. The health and wellbeing of our staff is important to us, and this measure will ensure their safety and assist health services in their efforts against COVID-19.
Be reassured that you can continue to access the Carer Gateway on 1800 422 737, and we will continue to update our website and social media sites regularly. We’ll also be able to continue to take calls to assist young carers with the Young Carer Bursary which launches next week.
We understand this is a challenging time for us all and we thank you for your understanding as we put these measures in place. The needs of carers and their families continue to be at the heart of what we do and we remain committed to advocating for carers.
