Towards a National Carer Strategy

We are currently preparing our submission for the National Carer Strategy.

Once this is complete, we will be passing it on for consideration. In 2003 there were approximately 2.6 million carers in Australia but only 104 thousand received a Centrelink pension. That means that almost 2.5 million were left to struggle on their own.

We intend to make our voice heard to change this appalling situation.

Stay tuned because we will be making our submission available online for all to read.
