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.
