Are you a carer?

A lot of people think a carer is like a support worker who gets paid for it—but that’s not the case. A carer can be young or old; they can care for someone full time or for a couple of hours a day. They can be family or friends or neighbours or colleagues. And they don’t get paid for it.


People in the Northern Territory are active carers.

NDIS Information Sessions

Various Dates in 2018

Full Scheme Ahead - A Carers Guide to the NDIS

The NDIS Full Scheme Ahead Information Session is designed to provide a Carers Guide to the NDIS. It is an entry level introduction to the NDIS that:

  • Provides an overview to the scheme,
  • Describes how the scheme interfaces with family Carers, and
  • Introduces processes such as testing eligibility, gathering evidence to make an application to the scheme, and the pre-planning and planning process prior to receiving one’s first plan.

Individuals and companies support carers

Volunteer with Carers NT

Volunteers make a vital contribution to all aspects of community life. Our volunteers are crucial in supporting carers in the NT, and we’re always looking for more volunteers to join us in Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs.


Sponsor an event

We rely on corporate supporters to sponsor our events with their generous financial contributions (large and small) as well as their time, in-kind support, products/services for our auctions, and a few extra helping hands from their staff.

Event Sponsorship
