I am a service provider

Jewish Care (Victoria) Inc.

Jewish Care (Victoria) Inc. thanks the Australian Government Department of Social Services for the opportunity to respond to the Departments discussion paper entitled ‘Designing the new integrated carer support service’, released May 2016.

Jewish Care supports the Departments desire to both increase and better coordinate services that support the many unpaid carers in our society. We believe that the initiatives outlined in the discussion paper will have a substantial impact on improving the experience of the carer in performing their vital role whilst at the same time assisting to improve their individual well-being.

The attached submission outlines our response to the questions raised in the Discussion Paper and we would be happy to provide additional information if and when required.
