Our Charity Partners
Amcal is a proud supporter of Carers Australia the national peak body representing Australia’s carers. Carers Australia advocate on behalf of Australia’s carers to influence policies and services at a national level; working collaboratively with partners, members and state and territory Carers Associations, to deliver a range of essential national carer services.
Carers are an integral part of Australia's health system and are the foundation of our aged, disability, palliative and community care systems. Caring may include help and support in any of the daily activities of the person being cared for. It may include physical and personal care and assistance such as dressing, lifting, showering, feeding or providing transport. Commonly, carers are responsible for the management of medications. Carers provide emotional, social or financial support. Caring may also involve helping the person they are caring for to be organised, reminding them to attend appointments and dealing with emergencies.
In 2015 there were over 2.8 million unpaid carers in Australia providing an estimated 1.9 billion hours of unpaid care; with a total replacement value of $60.3 billion.
