Calm through Change

We understand that when you care for someone who is frail, has a disability, health condition, or illness, life can feel a little out of control at times.

Particularly when there are changes afoot.

From April 2020, under the Government’s new carer support model, Carers SA will now be the main provider of services for South Australia’s 250,000 unpaid carers. This means Carers SA is your first port of call to provide clarity and calm during this transition.


Carer Gateway is the national carer support model funded by the Commonwealth Government.

Carers SA, along with our partners Dementia Australia, Skylight, Life Without Barriers and NPY Women’s Council, are the only organisations providing federally funded support services for carers in South Australia.
