Consultation: New Carer Support Service

Nic McBride

The Department of Social Services (DSS) is now seeking feedback on a proposed Integrated Carer Support Service (ICSS), designed to assist individuals and families in their caring roles through a variety of online and direct supports.

Among other imperatives, the new Service is intended to meet the needs of carers following NDIS roll-out and the associated defunding of programs such as Mental Health Respite: Carer Support (MHR:CS).
