The first-ever National Carer Survey received over 8,500 responses in total, with Victorian carers accounting for 16% of the total number of respondents.
Carers Victoria thanks all carers who participated in the survey. The survey findings will help Carers Victoria advocate for carers, influence policy development and improve service delivery for carers into the future.
One of the findings of this survey was that while carers are generally happy with the aged care support provided to them, both the aged care system and providers need to do more to address their needs. Read more about this in the Community Care Review.
