Developing the NSW Carers strategy - what do you need to be included?

The NSW Carers Strategy will shape the way NSW supports carers between 2014 and 2019. Have your say on the strategy and let the government know what support you need.

Further information about the areas to be addresses, and questions about the roles of carers are available from the NSW Government's Have Your Say website, along with a link to the online survey:
Creating innovative solutions with carers
The NSW Government wants your help to develop strategies for the state’s 850,000 carers. Carers are family members, friends, housemates and neighbours who provide ongoing, unpaid support to someone who needs it because of disability, chronic illness, mental illness and frail age.

Carers and the broader community are vital to the development of the NSW Carers Strategy so please complete the consultation survey before leaving this site. The survey is quick and easy to complete. Simply tell us which ideas you think are the most important for supporting carers in each area of their life.

The proposed ideas have been developed through a collaborative process with carers, government and community all working together to develop innovative solutions. The Frequently Asked Questions and Information Paper have more information about the consultation and development of the NSW Carers Strategy.

Please share this page with your friends and family and encourage them to get involved.
