Carers Australia manages the Better Start Registration and Information Service. This program is funded by the Department of Social Services.
To find out more about Better Start and how to make an appointment with the Registration and Information Service advisors, call 1800 242 636 or see below for your state or territory contact details.
A Registration and Information Service Adviser will make an appointment with you to assess your child’s eligibility for Better Start and will support you through the registration process.
Eligible children must be registered in order to access Better Start early intervention funding.
Please be advised, Better Start registrations are closing in areas where the NDIS Early Childhood Early Intervention approach is rolling out. Please contact a Registration and Information Service advisor in your state or territory for more information.
