Carers Australia welcomes today’s announcement to increase support for Australia’s 2.65 million unpaid carers.

The $3.8 million investment in a National Carers Strategy will provide a coordinated carer policy, removing geographical and agency boundaries for carers.

It comes as Carers Australia launches its Carer-Inclusive Workplace Initiative aimed at creating a more inclusive, supportive workplace for Australian’s who provide unpaid care in the community.
