In collaboration with the Quality Aged Care Action Group and Carers’ Circle, Aged Care Reform Now (ACRN) provided a joint submission to the Productivity Commission on its Carer leave issues paper. The submission discussed the provision of carer leave and importantly the other support services that impact the need for carer leave provisions and entitlements. Essentially, if there were better support systems in place to help people stay at home, there would be less need for carers to take time out of the workforce.
This is the first step in the discussion with another submission due early 2023.
