Strategic Plan

Carers NSW is effective in meeting the needs of carers by working to a Strategic Plan. The current Carers NSW Strategic Plan outlines the organisation’s goals and strategic directions for 2018–2021.

Carers NSW vision is for an Australia that values and supports all carers, and our goals are to:

  • Be a leading carer organisation in which carers have confidence
  • Actively promote carer recognition and support
  • Actively support carers to navigate a changing service landscape that will be characterised by ongoing policy reform
  • Promote connected community experiences and opportunities for carers that are inclusive of diverse carer groups
  • Lead and advocate for carer-specific and carer-inclusive policy making, research and service delivery
  • Continue to be a quality-driven, responsive and carer-focused organisation.

The key Strategic Pillars in the Plan for 2018-2021 focus on advice, capacity building and awareness, with the Strategic Actions of being collaborative and responsive.

The Plan was developed with input from a range of stakeholders including carers from across NSW, Carers NSW Board and staff, representatives of funding bodies, and partner non-government organisations.

Carers NSW is a not-for-profit registered charity and company limited by guarantee. It is governed by a Board of Directors in accordance with the Corporations Act 2001 and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Act 2012.
