Carers Alliance a collective voice

17 April 2018

The meeting focused on gaining a collective voice of groups who all represent carers to ensure an effective, responsive and fair five year Carers' Strategy Action Plan from the government.

Our Relationship Manager, Lisa Crawford, was able to speak briefly with Minister for Social Development and Disability Issues Carmel Sepuloni to explain the range of issues the rare disorder community face, and ask that their voice be considered during this process.

Carers NZ has also commissioned a discussion paper from Sapere looking at issues relating to carer payment across age groups and caring situations (beyond disability) to share with the Government, which could then offer solutions and facts to improve current policy.
