National Carer Strategy Action Plan (2011-2014)

The National Carer Strategy Action Plan (2011-2014) sets out tangible short-term actions with scorecards to measure success against each of the Strategy’s six priority areas. Many of these actions are designed to make sure that broader reform agendas consider and support the crucial role of carers in the care and support system.

The Action Plan (2011-2014) is a companion document to the Implementation Plan which outlines how the Strategy’s priorities and ideas for action will be put in place.
