NSW Carers Strategy 2014 - 2019

Published Literature


This care is fundamental to family life and our community wellbeing. Unpaid care is critical to the sustainability of our health and community services systems. It would cost over $40 billion to replace the hours of care provided by unpaid carers in Australia (The Economic Value of Informal Care in 2010, Access Economics 2010).

The NSW Government’s vision for the more than 857,000 carers in NSW is that they are supported to participate fully in their own social and economic life. We want them to be healthy and live well. The NSW Carers Strategy is a five year plan to improve the position of carers in NSW. The strategy will be implemented by government, non-government organisations and private businesses in new partnerships designed to deliver better services and support for carers.
