Did you know currently Tasmania is the only state or territory in the country without legislation to recognise carers!

Last week the Tasmanian Government released the draft legislation for recognising carers, and need your help so we can help you.

The draft Carer Recognition Bill 2022 was released by the Government last week and they have requested for feedback.

What does the Bill contain:

  • Definition of a carer; and
  • A Carers Charter that contains eight (8) principles

We would like to work closely with you to identify changes that are needed in the Bill.

Please let us know your thoughts by completing a short survey

Link to the survey is here.

You can find the draft Bill here

The deadline for comment is Tuesday, 10 May 2022.
