ACT Carers Strategy - Carers Voice Panel Video

In October 2017, 49 carers and members of the broader Canberra community formed the Carers Voice Panel to develop the ACT Carers Strategy. The Carers Voice Panel met twice, using a deliberative democracy approach, to develop its vision for a carer friendly Canberra. The panel’s aims included establishing outcomes the community wants to see for carers, and identifying what our shared priorities should be.
