Carer e-Leadership Network

The Carer e-Leadership Network is a way for carers to influence the development of resources for carers and provide guidance to Care Matters. It will involve contributing to bi-monthly emails where key issues are discussed, in a web-based group, and carers can provide input for new resources.


Care Matters is committed to ensuring carers:

  • Have access to accurate and current information on a wide range of topics.

  • Contribute to the development of approaches and supports that best meet their needs.

  • Are equipped with skills to make the best use of existing and emerging opportunities.

  • Can provide the Government with advice.

To become a member of the Carer e-Leadership Network you will need to:

  • Be a carer of a person receiving DSS – Ministry of Health disability funding of some type.

  • Have routine access to email.

  • Be willing to be a key local contact in building stronger national networks.

  • Be committed to the constructive sharing of ideas with a diverse network of carers in New Zealand.
