Today, Carers Australia released responses from the three major parties about their commitment to support carers across the country.

Around 2.65 million Australians are caring for someone else, and their say in this election is critical because they contribute around $78 billion dollars into the Australian economy in savings on paid formal care services through different sectors, such as aged care or disability.

Carers Australia is encouraging carers to weigh their options between parties and vote.
