Carer Support and Individualised Funding (IF)
The Ministry of Health is extending the flexibility for Carer Support and Individualised Funding (IF) until 28 February 2021 (initially this was due to end 30 June 2020, to cover the COVID-19 response).

Information on masks has been updated. Please check our COVID-19 Guidance page for current guidelines around face coverings. Carers NZ recommends wearing a face covering in situations where applicable, to protect yourself and others. However we also understand that this isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ issue: carers or the person(s) they are caring for, may have good reasons for not wearing a mask. The Ministry of Health has provided exemption cards which you can download and print here.
