New Zealand’s Carer’s Strategy Action Plan 2019 – 2023
The Carers’ Strategy aims to improve support for individuals, families, whānau and kainga who look after friends and family who have a health condition, disability, illness or injury and need help with everyday living.
Consultation is currently happening for the Carer’s Strategy Action Plan 2019 – 2023. The draft Action Plan covers a wide range of areas including payment for family carers, flexible funding models, continence, young caring, and respite.
There are a number of ways you can have your say on the draft Action Plan, including by:
- attending a workshop
- completing the online survey
- making a written submission.
Closing date for submissions is 16 August 2019.
