Carers are people who provide support and care for a person who has a disability, is frail aged or has a mental or physical illness. They are usually a family member or friend. Being a carer often means giving up time, money, resources and employment to care for another .Being a carer can be a very frustrating, demanding, confusing, stressful and even lonely experience.
As a carer of a person with a disability, mental illness or an older person, you may find it hard to advocate for your own interests as well as for those for whom you care. ADACAS is able to provide carers in the ACT with advocacy. We will work with you and the person you care for to help your voices to be heard.
Carers ACT also provides advocacy for carers while being a major provider of care services and supports in the ACT.

Advocacy is about helping a person to be heard in the decisions that affect their life. Advocacy aims to increase a person’s control over goods, services and quality of life
