Care for a Carer – Making a difference in everyday lives.
As the Minister responsible for carers, I am pleased to launch the new Care for a Carer website and campaign. Care for a Carer is about recognising carers make a difference everyday, and in everyday lives.
The new site features the stories of a broad range of carers living in NSW. It reflects the diversity of carers and their lives and highlights the significant contribution carers make to the community and in the lives of those they care for.
It also provides information about the services available to carers including the new initiatives and projects funded by the NSW government through the Carers Investment Program.
Importantly, the site also hosts information and resources targeting NSW government departments and agencies, to help them meet their obligations under the NSW Carers (Recognition) Act 2010.
This includes downloadable factsheets and posters about the NSW Carers Charter in community languages and in easy read formats. And there is more to come. The site will be updated regularly with more carer stories, details of upcoming events and new carer projects and initiatives.
The Hon. Ray Williams MP
Minister responsible for Carers
