Funding for Carer Support
Funding Assistance for Carers
Autism Counselling is able to direct Carers to some organisations who can provide funding to access counselling support with us.
Autism Counselling is also subcontracted to Family Relationship Support for Carers (FRSC), though EACH, to provide short term counselling to families on a referral basis. Families may self refer by calling 1300 303 346 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This funding is means tested.
Carer Gateway makes it easier for you to find help. It's a great idea to talk with Carer Gateway staff to see what services and support are available in your area.
How can I get help?
When you call Carer Gateway on 1800 422 737, you will reach a Carer Gateway service provider in your area. A trained worker will be available to talk with you and then help you to find services and support to meet your needs.
Carer services are available through a new Australia-wide network of Carer Gateway service providers.
