Emergencies can happen anytime. If you are a carer, planning for emergencies will help you to cope even when things go wrong.
Caring can be costly. You may be able to get payments and other financial support to help with your costs.
The Australian Government provides payments to directly support carers. You may also be able to get help to arrange and pay for some services. Find out what payments and other financial help you can get by exploring these pages.
You may also want to visit other sites to find out about services that might help you. For example, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with disability, and My Aged Care supports elderly people.
