Carers NSW aims to foster a culture of evidence based practice that is consistent with our vision and Strategic Directions. Our strategic policy and service planning is supported through research and evaluation.

We offer varying levels of research support and partnership. Potential research collaborations are individually considered, allowing for specific partnership roles to be negotiated.
