We support carers in the NT

Are you a carer?

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.
