No contingency to increase the allowance in the last budget

Despite years of advocacy by carers and peak bodies, as well as a KPMG report on the Allowance (that the Government has kept cabinet-in-confidence) which provides evidence of the shortfall, carers are still bearing the true costs of care.

We are demanding better

We will send a letter to Minister Blandthorn and Treasurer Pallas demanding a better outcome for carers. See here.

We invite you to add your name to this petition to show that we’re not alone in expecting better for carers and the children and young people in their care. Please sign the petition here.
