THE future of the Mildura Carers Hub is in jeopardy due to a lack of funds, the aged care royal commission heard yesterday.

The hub, which was established in 2017 as an experimental program arising from the Mildura Carer Blueprint, provides a social venue for carers to hear guest speakers, attend education ­sessions and counter stress and isolation.

There are 7500 carers in the region and about 3000 people go through Mildura hub each year, the commission heard.
