Carer Gateway Services

When you’re a carer, it’s important to take time for yourself to rest and recharge.

Respite is when someone else takes care of the person you care for, so you can have a break:

Call Carer Gateway to find out about the respite care available in your area.

Fraud / Scams Prevention Talk

The Maltese Welfare NSW  would like to thank all those who  attended our information talk on Fraud / Scams Prevention at La Valette Social Centre on the 17th November. It was  very successful morning. Many attendees asked  important questions relating to current frauds and scams and were told  how to be vigilant of deceitful people.

It was pleasing to see so many of our Maltese Community gather in great numbers. Thanks to the OLQP Church group for organising  bus transport.

We would like to thank  Godfrey Sultana President of  La Valette Social Centre and his Committee for their co-operation in  holding this event.

I take this opportunity to also thank our Sponsor Fiducian Financial Services, whose  support is imperative to hold these events

Fraud / Scams Information Talk

The Maltese Welfare NSW  is holding an information morning about Fraud / Scams

Our  Community is  being targeted, especially our elderly and we need to protect ourselves.

Australians lost a record amount of more than $2 billion to scams in 2021, despite government, law enforcement, and the private sector disrupting more scam activity than ever before, the ACCC’s latest Targeting Scams report reveals.

Scammers are the most opportunistic of all criminals: they pose as charities after a natural disaster, health departments during a pandemic, and love interests every day.”

The true cost of scams is more than a dollar figure as they also cause serious emotional harm to individuals, families, and businesses.

An estimated 55% of Australians aged 15 years and over (11.1 million) were exposed to a scam in 2020-21.

Maltese Welfare will be holding and information morning on  Thursday 17th November see details on attached flyer.

 Please help us to inform and encourage  our Maltese Community  to attend.

Maltese Respite Services at La Valette is a community respite service that provides both centre-based and flexible care.

Respite care supports you and your carer by giving you both a break for a short period of time. It can help give you and your carer the time and space to do things independently.

The type of service available to you depends on your eligibility, needs and the services available in your area.


Community respite is provided under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP). It’s best suited if you need occasional carer support for some day-to-day tasks or activities.


Centre-based respite care is an excellent way to stay connected and meet other people in your community, supporting everyone’s health and wellbeing. There are a great range of activities that can take place at La Valette and out in the community, including meals, entertainment, social outings, and much more. Transport to and from the centre, as well as for outings is also available.


Flexible respite is designed to provide help and support while the carer can take a short break.


If you’re an older person and you require support, you may be eligible for community respite.

To see if you are eligible visit the Australian Government’s My Aged Care website or call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to get started.


If you are a recipient of respite care through Maltese Respite Services at La Valette, a carer for somebody who does, or would like more information about our services, please contact us:
