Hello and welcome
Here at The Carers Place, we do things a little differently.
Firstly, we listen!
Yep, that’s right, we take the time to listen to you, get to know you and what it is you need.
We work with individuals and their families to help navigate the complex systems that are there to support us like Health, Community Services and the NDIS.
We are led by an experienced family carer, parent who is also a health, wellbeing and community services professional.
So we get it. We live it. And we are determined to do things differently to make your life easier!
feeling overwhelmedand confused by government agencies and support systems?
- tired of not being heard by service providers who don’t take the time to understand what it is you need
disillusionedby the promises made by service providers and the lack of follow through?
- feeling left behind and that you’re just another number in the system?
If so, you aren’t alone.
Let's create your circle of supports
As family carers ourselves, we know the value in quality reliable supports, yet how difficult they are to find.
We are super passionate about supporting your whole family because we know you don’t live in isolation.
You are busy, exhausted and are struggling to get ‘all of the things done’, let alone keep on top of taking great care of you.
Taking advantage of our personal and professional experiences, we thrive on finding solutions for our clients through our creativity and passion to please.
Knowing that your life is not run between the hours of nine and five, Monday to Friday, our supports are provided with a flexible approach.
You can access our services online, in your home, in a public place or over the phone at a time that suits you!
We are proudly INDEPENDENT and are not affiliated with other organisations.
We work with you to create solutions for your family and know how important it is to have practical support in place.
We simplify and take the stress out of dealing with government and community support systems. We help you navigate the maze of funding options and support services.
We know it’s hard to navigate the system when you are in survival mode dealing with the day-to-day crises that come with ill health and disability.
We’ve done it ourselves so we can help you to drive the process.
Here when you need us, judgement free, a safe place to fall.
We’re about more than just navigating the system.
Life is not lived in silos . . .
We know disability and chronic illness has a ripple effect across the whole family.
We create solutions that consider everyone in your family.
Whether you are looking for support under the NDIS, wellbeing support,
a listening ear and an understanding community to connect to, we will help!

Cassie provides an amazingly positive environment for carers of all sorts of illnesses and disabilities. A safe place to let go of all the failures and celebrate all the triumphant times, too. Many support groups tend to harbour lots of negativity because basically, everyone is having a rough time, however Cassie always finds a way to make sure that you leave feeling uplifted, cared for, and also helps you see that a failure is really your success.Theonie, Wife, Mum & Unpaid Family Carer
Cassie always knows, and says exactly what I need to hear when I need to hear it. I always turn to Cassie when I need advice or help, she is always so helpful and understanding. She has an amazing way with people and I am so glad that I have someone like her that I can talk too.
Cassie has an amazing way with words, she has really helped me through some tough times with her incredible knowledge, and her ability to help you get past them.
I believe Cassie is one of the most genuine, caring and helpful people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. Her understanding and knowledge of all things big and small is truly inspiring. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her, and she always gives the most honest advice followed up with continued support.Kirsty, Mum & Unpaid Family Carer
