Carer-Inclusive Workplace Initiative
Recognise the valuable contributions of carers and create a more inclusive, supportive workplace for Australian’s who provide unpaid care in the community.
The initiative explained
We encourage you to take a self-assessment and establish the extent of carer inclusivity in your organisation. Watch this short animation explaining how the initiative works.
Vital recognition for carers in the workplace
Australia’s ageing population, cost of living pressures, and evolving lifestyles are reshaping the landscape of caregiving. Just as workplaces have adapted to accommodate parents caring for children, it is crucial that we acknowledge the unique challenges faced by carers and provide them with the support needed to thrive in their careers.

Purpose of the project
This initiative aims to create more inclusive and supportive workplaces for the 2.65 million individuals who provide unpaid care in the community.
We have created multiple modules, designed in consultation with carers and industry, to equip your organisation with the knowledge it needs to become carer-inclusive.
Use our suite of guides, information and policy templates, designed by HR professionals, to equip your workplace with the tools it needs in making the commitment to carer-inclusivity.
