A Guide for Carers | He Aratohu mā ngā Kaitiaki

The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) has recently updated the Guide for Carers. The booklet outlines what support and services are available for someone who cares for a family or whānau member or someone close.

If you’re caring for someone who is disabled, has a health condition, an injury or a physical or mental illness and want to know more about the kinds of support available, the Guide is a good starting point.

It covers topics such as financial help, assessing needs, getting help at home, and taking a break from caring.

The Guide is available online, or you can contact MSD for a hard copy at [email protected].
