Carer Gateway has a new program for flood affected carers in New South Wales.

Stephanie Ellis is the new Flood Relief Navigator for Carers NSW in the Northern Rivers area. The role provides service coordination for carers who may be having some difficulty navigating the many local, state and national flood relief initiatives available.

The Flood Recovery Packages can provide financial support for carers to replace damaged household goods or clothing, assistance with temporary accommodation, for transport services for the care recipient to attend school, day program or respite or for the carer to get to work.

The maximum value of the Flood Recovery Package available to carers is $5000. The value and use of each package is determined based on the assessed need of the carer.

Carers will need to register with the Carer Gateway by calling 1800 422 737 to access the Flood Recovery Packages through the Carer Gateway.

Please contact Stephanie on 0436 125 483 Tues – Thurs if you have any questions or to arrange a time to meet and discuss the program.
