We work to improve the health, wellbeing, resilience and financial security of carers and to ensure that caring is a responsibility that’s shared by family, community and government. We also aim to raise greater awareness of carers and deliver initiatives to meet consider carers’ needs.
Carers Australia advocates and lobbies on a wide range of issues that affect carers, to influence national policies and services.
We also work collaboratively with other organisations, including our network of state & territory carer organisations, to develop policies, programs, services, and events to improve the lives of Australia’s carers – supporting them, and upholding their rights.
Carers Australia believes all carers, regardless of their cultural and linguistic differences, age, disability, religion, socioeconomic status, gender identification and geographical location should have the same rights, choices and opportunities as other Australians.
We develop our policies based on research and in consultation with carers, to make sure they remain effective and current. Where possible, we commission our own research and work in partnership with universities and other leading research bodies.
