- Advocacy & Allies –
Carers Tas is the peak body the 1:6 Tasmanians who provide unpaid care to someone with a disability, mental ill health, chronic or life-limiting illness, alcohol or other drug dependence or who are frail or aged.
The key role of Carers Tas is policy and systemic advocacy to support carers in their caring roles.
Carers Tas is inclusive.
We acknowledge and support people of all genders, sexualities, cultural beliefs, and abilities and understand that carers in Tasmania, whilst sharing the common theme of caring for a family member or friend, are diverse individuals with varying beliefs, experiences, and identities. We value and respect the diversity of carers, and their lived and living experiences, and recognise that carers are the experts in their own lives.
