MEDIA RELEASE: Aged Care Royal Commission Response
Recognition of the importance of informal carers an important step to improving home care
The Prime Minister of Australia, the Hon Scott Morrison MP, has kicked off this year’s National Carers Week by thanking unpaid carers for their remarkable contribution to our nation.
Carers Victoria was featured in a number of stories and media outlets for National Carers Week 2020. Find out what we got up to by clicking on a story below.
The Treasurer’s announcement tonight to provide two separate $250 support payments to those on the Carer Payment and Carer Allowance goes some way to providing some much-needed recognition of the work undertaken by unpaid carers during COVID-19.
Carers Victoria acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we operate, live and gather as employees, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
