Who is a carer?

Carer means a person who provides unpaid care and support to a family member, or friend, who

  • has a disability; or
  • has mental ill health; or
  • has a chronic or life-limiting condition; or
  • has alcohol or other drug dependence; or
  • is frail or aged; or
  • is a child, if the person is an informal kinship carer of the child.
