CARERS’ RESEARCH PROJECT
Carers of participants in the NDIS scheme were invited to take part in an important Southern Cross University research project, which aims to better understand the experiences of carers in the Coffs Harbour to Port Macquarie region. The purpose of the project is to inform government policy on how to better support carers and improve their employment, education and health prospects.
The project is called:
“The impact of the new disability support environment (National Disability Insurance Scheme) on regional carers”.
It is currently in progress until late 2020.
