Who Are Carers WA

Carers WA is the peak body that represents the needs and interests of carers in Western Australia. We work to achieve an improved quality of life for family carers in our state.

Carers WA is a non-profit, community based organisation and registered charity dedicated to improving the lives of the estimated 320,000 unpaid family carers living in Western Australia. Part of the National Network of Carers Associations, we are the peak body recognised by both State and Federal governments as the voice of family carers. Carers WA represents carers interests in the Western Australian community.

Our role is to work in active partnership with carers, persons with care and support needs, health professionals, service providers, government and the wider community to achieve an improved quality of life for carers.

Our Vision

A society where the role of a carer is valued and supported.

Our Mission

We will support the empowerment and wellbeing of carers through our programs, services, and advocacy.

Values/Principles

Compassion: We take the time to understand and respond to what life is like for people. 

Diversity and Inclusion: We welcome the diversity of people who access our services and contribute to our organisation. 

Innovation: We challenge ourselves to think beyond standard practice and continuously improve what we do and how we do it.

Positive Impact: We focus on the measurable differences we can make to carers and each other.

Carers WA has qualified for the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission’s Registered Charity Tick, enabling the public to easily identify our organisation as a registered charity and confirming that we are both transparent and accountable.
