The purpose of this report was to address the apparent lack of information pertaining to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander carers. In reviewing Australian and international literature, this report sought to elucidate the caregiving experience of unpaid Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander carers - those providing assistance to a family member or friend with a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue, or who are frail aged. This report provides information specific to the lived experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander carers, and the barriers such carers encounter in accessing services. The report also identifies ways to better enable support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander carers.
