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.
