The NDIS uses an insurance approach similar to Medicare, ensuring that individual disability costs are shared among the wider community.

Importantly, the NDIS support choice for people with a disability, Carers and their families. This is achieved by giving people control of the supports they receive, that best respond to their needs.

support groups


Northern Carers Network offers access to a range of Support Groups for Carers. Some are specialised and others are more general. Some groups meet monthly and some fortnightly. Some share coffee and a chat and others hear from guest speakers or go out and about. What they all have in common is they provide an opportunity for Carers to connect with people in similar circumstances to their own.
