Carers provide unpaid care and support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, drug or alcohol issues, or who are frail.
Carers ACT is a member of the National Network of Carers Associations. We are a non-government, not-for-profit association that relies on public and private sector support to fulfill our mission with, and on behalf of, carers.
We work closely with government and other support organisations to improve the lives of caring families and individuals throughout the ACT.
Carers ACT is a company limited by guarantee. The organisation is governed by a Board and functions in accordance with the Carers ACT Constitution.
Carers ACT would like to thank the input of family carers, members of the board and the staff within Carers ACT in the development of this three year plan. In addition we are grateful to the funding bodies, community members and partners who have worked with us to improve the lives of carers and their families.
Recent years have been monumental for the carer movement. Follow the image to read our annual reports and find out how we have contributed.
