Feedback sought - draft model for carer support

9 November 2016

Carer GatewayThe Australian Government is committed to supporting and sustaining the vital work of unpaid carers, and has developed a draft Service Delivery Model for a proposed new integrated carer support service system.

The draft Service Delivery Model outlines the proposed types of services and service delivery methods. The focus of the draft Service Delivery Model is to:

  • provide more services to more carers
  • reach carers earlier in their caring journey by providing supports that build their capacity
  • reduce strain
  • enable increased participation in education and the workforce; and
  • improve carer wellbeing.

The Department of Social Services is seeking feedback on a draft Service Delivery Model for a proposed future service by either making a submission or by participating in the carer survey.

The carer survey and submission process opened on 6 November 2016 and will conclude at 5pm 16 December 2016.
