This is administered by Centrelink and assists Carers looking after a child or an adult with a severe disability and/or medical condition which requires much additional attention – Autism included.
A supplementary payment if you care for someone who needs daily support.
This fortnightly payment is for you if you give support and care to someone either:
- with disability
- with a medical condition
- who’s frail aged.
This payment is for you if the person you care for needs ongoing daily care for at least 12 months or has a terminal medical condition.
To get this payment you and the person you care for will need to meet some rules. Read more about if you can get it.
There are other organisations who can help you and the person you care for. Read more about services in your state and getting support.
