Carer Statement Consultation on 13 April
The Victorian Government is preparing to release a Carer Statement in Carers’ Week this year, and has commissioned Carers Victoria to conduct consultations and an online survey to ensure that there is an opportunity for a broad range of carers to have their say. You can read more about the Carer Statement and consultations here.

To contribute, and to make sure that the specific experience of mental health caring is incorporated in the document, Tandem will host a specialist consultation at the 13 April Monthly Members’ Meeting. After a short ordinary meeting, the consultation will commence at 10.30am. The consultation will be capped at 35 carers, so please RSVP when meeting papers are sent out.

You can also help to ensure that the voices of mental health carers are heard by completing the online survey.
