The Caring Fairly Coalition

Caring Fairly is a national campaign led by unpaid carers, and supported by a coalition of carer support organisations, NGOs and peak bodies. It is coordinated by Mind Australia, one of Australia’s leading community managed mental health service providers.

Caring Fairly was launched on 21 August, 2018 at Parliament House, Canberra, by a founding coalition of over twenty organisations.

The Caring Fairly coalition has invested in leading edge research and produced evidence based policies to advance the economic, social and cultural rights of unpaid carers in Australia.
