The Tasmanian Carer Policy will raise awareness of the important and critical role of carers; promote better understanding of the issues faced by carers in their caring role; and provide the framework for government actions to identify carers and deliver the necessary support and services for them.

The Carer Policy will also ensure that carers are given the opportunity to be involved in decisions that affect them and to contribute to improving the care support system by using their unique and direct experience in providing care for their loved ones.

The objectives of the Carer Policy are to:
1. Increase the level of recognition of carers*.
2. Improve the level of support and services to carers.
3. Involve carers in the development and evaluation of policies, programs and
services that affect them and their caring role.
