What We Do

  • We work with organisations to provide better information and supports to Family Carers. We provide them with opportunities to collaborate on initiatives including National Carers Week, a multi-agency and multi-disciplinary Family Carer Research Group, and joint policy submissions.
  • We act as a distribution channel for information on Family Carer issues.
  • We actively encourage collaboration in all our projects. We provide cohesion to those organisations working to support Family Carers.
  • We commission relevant research that supports focused and quality interventions in the lives of Family Carers.
  • We coordinate National Carers Week annually in June
