The Australian Government is inviting applications in an open process to apply to deliver services under the Integrated Carer Support Services from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2024.   

This grant process will select a new network of Carer Gateway regional delivery partners (RDPs) across Australia to help carers access new and improved local and targeted services including:

  • needs assessment and planning;

  • in-person and phone-based coaching, counselling and in person peer support;

  • information and advice;

  • targeted financial support packages with a focus on supporting employment, education, respite access and transport;

  • access to emergency crisis support; and

  • assistance with navigating relevant, local services available to carers through federal, state and local government and non-government providers, including the National Disability Insurance Scheme, My Aged Care and palliative care.

RDPs will also conduct outreach activities, and link to social, health, education, community and cultural groups, to better understand regional and rural needs. 

RDPs are expected to make the greatest contribution to the ICSS outcomes.
