Carer Wellbeing Survey

To contribute to the 2023 survey and to go in the draw to win a gift card click here.

The Carer Wellbeing Survey asks people to share their experiences – past and present – of being a carer and the support services they use, including the Australian Government Carer Gateway. Participants can choose if they would like to complete a long or short version of the Survey and it is available in English, simplified Chinese, Arabic, Italian and Vietnamese. The survey was designed in collaboration between the University of Canberra – Health Research Institute, the Department of Social Services, and Carers Australia.  Analysis of results is undertaken by the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM) at the University of Canberra.

2022 was the second year the Carer Wellbeing Survey was undertaken. If you are interested in the results from the 2022 Carer Wellbeing Survey, read the full report here.


Why is there a Carer Wellbeing Survey?
Carers are responsible for taking care of the welfare of large numbers of vulnerable Australians, providing often challenging and complex caring duties. Researchers and advocates need to know more about how to support the wellbeing of carers, ensuring they have a high quality of life while providing quality of life to the people they care for. The national Carer Wellbeing Survey is addressing this gap; it seeks to build a comprehensive picture of the wellbeing of carers overtime, and how carers can best be supported.



All survey participants aged 14 or older who complete the survey before 31st March 2023 can enter our prize draw to win one of 13 prizes worth a total of $5,000, including:
– a first prize of a $1,500 gift card,
– second prize of a $1,000 gift card,
– third prize of a $500 gift card,
– or one of 10 runner up prizes of a $200 gift card.

You can have one or more entries into the prize draw, depending on whether you do shorter or longer versions of the survey. Winners will have their choice of an Itunes, Amazon, WISH, Coles-Myer, or Bunnings gift card.

The survey is voluntary, confidential and anonymous, and closes on 31st March 2023, at 11.59pm.
