More than 420,000 New Zealanders care for ill, frail, injured or disabled family members and friends.

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.

Despite their important role in family life and society, carers can feel invisible … taken for granted.

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!

Please read the Prime Minister's positive message for carers in the News section.  We look forward to meeting with him to discuss the welfare and needs of family, whanau, and aiga carers.
