2020 National Carer Survey

19 May 2020 | Posted In: News

There are around 2.65 million unpaid family and friend carers living in Australia and the Carers NSW 2020 National Carer Survey is one of the major ways to improve understanding of caring and carers’ lives. Carers around Australia are being asked to speak up and have their say by completing the 2020 National Carer Survey.

A carer is any individual who provides care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, mental illness, alcohol or drug dependency, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is frail due to age. Carers come from all walks of life, cultural backgrounds and age groups.

The 2020 National Carer Survey will help Carers NSW and its partners to advocate for carers, influence policy development and improve service delivery for carers into the future. The survey is completely anonymous and is open to any family or friend carer over the age of 16. Key findings from the survey will be published in a publicly available report and survey data will be used in a range of resources.

For further information, or to order a hard copy of the survey, please contact research@carersnsw.org.au or call 02 9280 4744.
