Carers New Zealand
Welcome to the website of Carers NZ's National Information Centre for family carers ... the 420,000+ New Zealanders who support ill, seriously injured, disabled, and frail aged friends and family members.
WeCareCampaign Carers are New Zealand’s biggest health workforce, and their unpaid work has an annual value of more than $7 billion. We will all give or need family care during our lives.
Add your voice to ours to call for genuine support and good decision-making for carers!
Send an email to the Prime Minister, John Key, or submit a photo to our visual petition with your own message about caring!
