Budget 2017: What it means for carers

Carers Australia
11 May 2017
Carers Australia has produced a document outlining a number of the key measures in the recent Federal Budget which may affect unpaid carers. 
Please note that Budget measures must be passed by Parliament before they can come into effect.
Summary The Budget did not include any new measures that will directly affect carer support services or social welfare payments devoted to carers. 
Several measures were announced that relate to the interests of carers, including additional supports for the people to whom they provide care.
