Carers Australia

The voice for carers across Australia

Carers Australia is the national peak body representing Australia’s family and friend 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.
