Changes to Reduce Harms from Prescription Opioids

Carers NSW is running a new program to help older carers understand the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and how to best use it.

The National Community Connector program commenced on 1 June 2020. It is for carers aged 65 plus who are looking after someone with a disability.

The program is also available to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people aged over 50 years who are caring for a relative or friend with a disability under the age of 65 years.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is funding the program. On the North Coast a Community Connector Project Officer, Karren Graham, is located in Coffs Harbour.
