Family members as unpaid carers policy
This policy clarifies the Government's position on the role of family members undertaking the care for relatives with disability as opposed to paid care workers, in response to applications received requesting payment to family members for the provision of care. The policy aims to protect the interests and rights of people with disability.
This policy precludes the employment of family members as attendants, except in exceptional circumstances.
