The Carer Hub East

At the Carer Hub East, we will support you as you prepare for an NDIS planning meeting.

What does the Carer Hub offer?

  • A welcoming space

  • Support as you prepare for the NDIS
  • Information and links to other supports

We have many activities scheduled in the lead up to the Eastern roll-out of the NDIS.

All sessions are FREE. Respite can be arranged if required to attend. These sessions are open to eligible carers living in the Eastern Metro Region who provide care to a person who is living with a mental illness, intellectual disability, autism, or severe and profound disability.
