Link-Ups Hidden Carers Caseworker provides information, advocacy and referrals to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander carers and/or those in need of care.
Through this program, we assess potential Carers, who are either Indigenous themselves or caring for an Indigenous person, who are referred to us by other Support Agencies or who contact Link-Up directly.
We provide an information referral service for existing Carers, who are caring youth, children or elders, and are not recognised by other Support Services.
We support and encourage Carers to establish Wills and Guardianships.
The Link-Up NSW Hidden Carer program is dedicated to identifying suitable carers and supporting carers to use existing carer support with the aim of building linkages between support services and Indigenous carers or non-Indigenous carers caring for an Indigenous person.
