Every two years Carers NSW conducts a comprehensive survey to better understand what carers want and need.
About the Carer Survey
The Carers NSW biennial Carer Survey is a great way for carers to provide feedback about what is and isn’t working in their caring role, and in the various service systems they access. This information helps Carers NSW and other organisations who work with carers advocate for better support and outcomes for carers.
Carers NSW receives funding from the NSW Department of Communities and Justice to conduct the biennial Carer Survey. Since 2020, the Carer Survey has been conducted nationally with the support of the State and Territory Carer Organisations.
