Diverse carer community celebrated in new campaign
Carers from NSW’s multicultural communities are being acknowledged for their work during this year’s National Carers Week.
The “It’s Caring” campaign recognises the 1 in 5 carers in NSW who come from a culturally and linguistically diverse background.
The initiative raises awareness about the support available to this community as part of National Carers Week.
Multiculturalism Minister Natalie Ward said the campaign would be rolled out in ten different languages to reach the many corners of NSW's diverse community.
“Multi-generational family households and shared caring duties can be common practice in some communities,” Mrs Ward said.
“This campaign aims to remove barriers to information, increase awareness about the support available.”
The campaign is part of a $4.9 million NSW Government investment for 2021-22 under the NSW Carers Strategy 2020 – 2030.
