Working carers are one of Australia’s greatest natural resources. But like most of our natural resources, we are hidden from view, taken for granted and some say, undervalued. Across Australia, there are at least 1.3 million working carers but very little is formally known about them. Virtually no research has been carried out to build up a picture of work/life balance issues for carers in paid employment.
