In the Northern Territory there are around 30,000 unpaid carers. They selflessly serve a family member or friend who needs support due to disability, age, or mental or physical illness.
In light of National Carers Week, I encourage Territorians to acknowledge the service and contribution of carers in our communities and families.
The Coalition Government provides over $8 billion annually in payments, allowances and supplements to give carers financial relief while caring for their loved ones. Recently we announced an additional $85.6 million over four years to deliver a range of new supports through the Integrated Carer Support Service
