Carers Australia

The voice for carers across Australia

Carers Australia is the national peak body representing Australia’s unpaid carers, advocating on their behalf to influence policies and services at a national level.

Our vision is an Australia that values and supports the contribution that carers make both to the people they care for and to the community as a whole.

Our Primary Objectives

  • To advocate for policy and service actions that support the caring role and enhance the health, wellbeing, resilience and financial security of Carers;
  • To advocate for the inclusion of Carers as a priority group within mainstream and specialist service programs;
  • To advocate to have caring recognised as a shared responsibility of family, community, business and government with the aim of achieving improved outcomes for carers;
  • To undertake other policy, advocacy and service actions which the Board considers to be of benefit to Carers.
