Support for the South West unpaid carers

Unpaid carers in the South West will benefit from $85.6 million in additional funding for support services, according to federal member for Forrest Nola Marino.

Mrs Marino said the new support services were in recognition of the important contribution unpaid carers were providing to their families.

“The Turnbull Government will provide a range of new services, including peer support, coaching, targeted financial support and crisis support, to target early-intervention and build carers’ skills,” she said.
