Carers Australia has launched a Work and Care initiative which aims to help carers to combine employment with their caring responsibilities. It also aims to assist long-term carers to transition into employment when their caring role ceases or is reduced.

A key aspect of this initiative is a booklet for employers entitled The business case for carer-friendly workplaces that outlines why improving employment options for carers will benefit carers, employers and the economy.

Over the coming months Carers Australia will develop a series of resources for employers.
