Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV) has partnered with Carers Victoria to improve outcomes for carers from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.
Funded through the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH), the Recognising and Respecting Carers from Cultural and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds project seeks to address priorities set out by the Victorian Government in the Victorian Carer Strategy 2018- 22.
These priorities ensure that carers:
are healthy and well
are engaged in education, employment and community
can access respite and other supports they need
have less financial stress and
are recognised, acknowledged and respected.
