Carers NT is the voice that represents the needs and interests of carers in the Northern Territory. We work to achieve an improved quality of life for family carers in the NT.
Carers NT is now a Registered NDIS Provider offering Support Coordination Services.
Support Coordinators help people connect with the supports they need as identified in their NDIS Plan, maintain the Plan and help them achieve their goals.
Over the coming months Carers NT support services for NDIS will expand to offer more support for carers in the NT.
Nearly everyone knows someone who is a carer or relies on one. 1 in 3 Northern Territorians will become a carer in their lifetime.
Generous contributions we receive from sponsors, local businesses and members of the community assist us to support carers throughout the Northern Territory. Donations $2.00 or more are tax deductable.
