A Guide for Carers

A Guide for Carers - He Aratohu mā ngā Kaitiaki

16 September 2016.

An updated version of A Guide for Carers (the Guide) is now available.

The updated Guide provides the latest information on the range of services and support available for those who provide care for someone close to them (a family member or friend) who needs help with everyday living because of a health condition, disability or injury.

The Guide was first published in 2009 under the first five-year Action Plan of the New Zealand Carers’ Strategy (the Strategy).

The Strategy recognises the contribution of whānau, aiga and carers and seeks to improve support for them. The Guide was developed in response to requests by carers for a single resource on the range of government support available to carers.

Since the Guide was first published in 2009, it has been updated regularly by the lead agencies for the New Zealand Carers’ Strategy, other government agencies, and Carers NZ to ensure it remains relevant and accurate for carers.
