Don't miss out: tell us how to improve support for carers

6 March 2014



Minister for Ageing and Disability Services John Ajaka reminded carers across NSW to have their say on the development of a new five year NSW Carers Strategy before public consultation closes at the end of this week.

 "The NSW Government wants your help to develop strategies to support the state’s 850,000 carers which is why we are inviting you to take part in a short online survey," Mr Ajaka said.

"The NSW Carers Strategy will underpin the way the government provides support for carers across the state until 2019.

"The survey is quick and easy to complete and allows you to tell us what ideas you think are the most important for supporting carers in each area of their life.

"This is your opportunity to tell us how we can improve services for carers and help tackle issues such as health and wellbeing, financial stress and social exclusion.

"The proposed ideas in the online survey are the result of carers, government and community working together to develop innovative solutions.

 "Don't miss your chance to be involved in helping us produce a new plan to support carers."

Carers are family members, friends, housemates or neighbours who provide ongoing unpaid support to people who need help with everyday aspects of life.

 All public feedback will be considered carefully and will be included in the consultation report which will be presented to the Ministerial Carers Summit at the end of this month.

 If you would like to have your say visit www.haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au and provide feedback before Friday 7 March.
