Explore payments based on your situation.
We provide payments to help Indigenous Australians finish studies and to support them while they are looking for work.
Financial assistance for Indigenous Australians
ABSTUDY provides help with costs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians who are studying or undertaking an Australian apprenticeship.
Newstart Allowance provides financial help if you are looking for work and supports you while you take part in activities that may increase your chances of finding a job.
The Assistance for Isolated Children Scheme helps with the extra costs of educating children who cannot go to an appropriate state school on a daily basis because they:
- live in an isolated area
- have a disability
- have special health needs
You may also be able to get the Remote Area Allowance if you receive certain income support payments, such as Newstart Allowance or Age Pension, and live in a remote area.
Other government and community support services
Better Start for Children with Disability initiative provides early intervention services and treatments for eligible children with disability.
If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or stress, you may find it helpful to talk to somebody about your situation.
There are a range of government and community organisations that provide support services and useful information you may find helpful.
