Carers: Have your say in Carers Tasmania research project

by Brighton Council

Carers Tasmania are running a research project to better understand the experiences and needs of informal kin­ship carers across Tasmania. An informal kinship carer is an adult who provides care to a person under 18 years old because their parent is not able to, and there is no for­mal agreement or court order in place. The project aims to identify informal kinship carers across Tasmania and consult with them so Carers Tasmania can understand their service and support needs. Kinship carers can share their knowledge via:

  • A private (one-on-one) phone call or Zoom chat,
  • Attending a community fo­rum in their local area, or
  • Completing an online survey.

The research report findings will help develop necessary support services and connect kinship carers with Care­2Serve programs, events and initiatives that will support them as informal kinship car­ers. All information collected will be de-identified and kept confidential. For more information on the Carers Tasmania research project, call 03 6144 7300.
