Information & Support

Our Carer Advisory Service supports your caring role by providing information, planning and referral advice to you and your family.

We can also assist service providers and other individuals looking for information and resources about carer supports and services.

The Carer Advisory Service is your first point of contact with Carers NT.

When you call, you will speak to our experienced Carer Advisors who are trained to understand the needs and challenges of caring families.

We can help you with

  • Specialised information and resources about caring. This may include information about service and support systems, the condition of the person you are caring for, how to maintain your own health and wellbeing or financial and legal issues.
  • Providing referral advice about services in the Northern Territory, including respite, counselling, education and training or carer support groups
  • Carer support and referral to our free counselling program

We continuously work with other agencies such as community groups, health professionals and government to increase awareness of carers’ roles and needs.

We can arrange interpreting services if English is not your preferred language.
