CARERS NT_stacked LOGO_2017.jpg

Carers NT is A Not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of carers in the Northern Territory. Carers NT are the Local Carer Gateway Service provider throughout the Northern Territory.

All carers can access Carer Gateway services. You are a carer if you are looking after someone with disability, a medical condition, mental illness or who is frail due to age.

You don’t need to be a new carer to use Carer Gateway services – any carer can use the services at any time in their caring journey.

Carers NT is inclusive of all carers and the people they care for, no matter their age, background, ethnicity, religious beliefs or sexual orientation.

Our vision is to have a community in which carers are recognised and valued as a significant asset in which they have access to timely and appropriate services.

We do this by promoting awareness of carers with government funders and the broader community and by giving carers and the person they care for access to services like respite, counselling, peer support, advice and information.

Carers NT are registered NDIS providers, and we also offer a range of Aged Care services with CHSP funding.

Most of our services do not attract fees, however some services have set fees (NDIS), or request a contribution towards the cost of services provided.

Interpreter Services available.

CORP.jpg

You may have made contact with EASA (the provider of our Psychological services) in the past and may have been surprised by the depth of services we offer in the Organisational Services area. With encouragement from some of our valued customers we are ensuring that other workplaces are getting the opportunity to access these services too.

CORP was created to meet the growing demand for a dedicated area specialising in support about a range of common challenges. We aim for a dedicated area for employees to explore their own development, and organisations to grow their employees.

We felt that all too commonly Organisations were turning to the South for Services that we have been providing for over 30 years, our challenge is getting the word out. With the ‘Tomorrow’s Territory’ promotion underway, Territory wide, our focus is for NT people to utilise NT services and learn that select local services can service the Territory just as good if not better than down South!
The changing environment in which you operate poses opportunity, to do more with less, to create an adaptable, professional, flexible and skilled workforce to support organisational change and redesign.

We’ve noticed engagement in our services, can be later in the change process and we are engaged in efforts to deal with unintended outcomes. The biggest challenge is engaging in reflection before change occurs as well as during the process. We aim to assist and support your Leadership in the change process. With our background and use of EASA’s psychological expertise we have a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon.

EASA’s basis of psychological knowledge particularly in what we now know about the brain lifts our workshops return on investment. We’ve all attended training that hasn’t engaged us. Growth and development for an individual or an organisation has been researched extensively, this helps us understand whole brain thinking/planning at both the organisation and individual level.

CORP knows that: “we’ve always done it this way’’ relates to our comfort zones, that change or adaption is tough but often necessary in changing environments. Ask how CORP can support your progress and growth tapping into your resources and assisting you to lead.

Services that CORP offers:

Mediation

Group Facilitation

Workplace Investigation

Conflict assessment

Conflict Coaching

Life Coaching

Management Coaching

Exit Interviews

GIVIT Listed Ltd connects those who have with those who need, in a safe and private way. Through the GIVIT website, trusted Australian organisations are able to request exactly what is needed by their clients. These requests are listed here, where everyday Australians can donate in response. Alternatively, donors can pledge items for donation into our online warehouse which is a private online portal where registered organisations can see and reserve what’s available.

When a need is matched to a donation, the GIVIT portal sends an email to exchange contact details between the donor and the organisation where they can both liaise to arrange a delivery option. Once the charity receives the item, it is privately passed onto the recipient. The donor and recipient never meet as, above all, GIVIT aims to preserve the dignity and privacy of people accessing support.
