Carers Fund

We recognise that significant caring responsibilities may impact the ability of delegates to attend the ABA/ASB 2018 meeting. We have established the Carer Travel Fund which will provide support towards costs associated with caring duties that arise from travel to the ABA/ASB 2018 meeting in Melbourne. Funding allocated under this Scheme is intended to assist with costs such as:

· Additional local care costs incurred due to the absence of the primary carer (i.e. the applicant) that is attending ABA/ASB2018

· Caring arrangements at the destination ie. In Melbourne between 2-6 December, 2018

· Travel and/or accommodation costs of a partner/carer also undertaking the travel

· Travel and/or accommodation costs of the dependent also undertaking the travel

Other costs such as conference attendance fees are not included. Support may be provided up to $400 per applicant and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

To apply for support form Carers Fund, please send an email to Renae Ryan ( by Nov 16 outlining the proposed carer expenses including the Activity/Item, Time-frame, Dollar amount and how these expenses are in addition to normal caring expenses due to travel to the ABA/ASB2018 meeting. Reimbursement will require evidence of the expenditure such as receipts.
