Policy papers and submissions

Publishing papers and preparing written submissions are the main ways our Policy Team tells the NSW and Australian governments about what carers need.

COVID-19 and carers

Carers NSW has been closely following the development of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impacts of transmission risk and social distancing requirements on carers living in NSW and the people they care for.

The following publications highlight key issues for carers and make recommendations for improving carer support during this challenging period.

Carers and service providers are invited to raise issues and put forward suggestions to the Carers NSW Policy Team by contacting us at policy@carersnsw.org.au or on (02) 9280 4744.

For regular updates on COVID-19 information relevant to carers, visit the News section of our website.

Carers NSW has also developed the following practically focused fact sheets for carers:

Pre-Budget Submissions

Every year the Carers NSW Policy Team prepares a comprehensive submission for the NSW Government on what we think their spending priorities should be in relation to carers in their upcoming State Budget. These submissions are based on consultation with carers, stakeholders and Carers NSW staff.

Policy submissions

Carers NSW regularly provides submissions to NSW and Australian government inquiries and consultations, as well as policy and legislative reviews and drafts. 

Conference presentations and posters

Carers NSW Policy Team works closely with our Research Team to develop and deliver presentations and posters for leading sector conferences.
