Information for non-government organisations

Non-government organisations can use this sample letter to let carers know about this financial support when the child in their care is nearing the age of eligibility.

Caseworkers should talk to eligible carers and provide them with FAQs and application form.

The policy and procedure documents detail information for caseworkers when helping carers apply.

A quarterly NGO report is produced along with a tax invoice for NGO’s to claim carer allowance component of the unit cost to forward to eligible carers.
