Carers' responsibilities

Trying to maintain both paid work and an unpaid caring role can be incredibly stressful. Many carers describe it as like trying to hold down two full time jobs.

There are many reasons carers combine work while providing unpaid care, including; maintaining career aspirations, financial necessity or to simply participate in society and gain social interaction with peers. Whatever the reason, chances are there will be times when balancing these two roles is very challenging.

The Carers' Australia Guide for Employees is designed to assist unpaid family and friend carers who are juggling paid work with their caring responsibilities. It provides information on what the caring role involves, carers’ workplace entitlements, advice on balancing work and caring responsibilities and information on available supports and services for carers.

How does the ANU help?

The ANU recognises the needs of staff with caring responsibilities through a variety of workplace arrangements and programs, including flexible leave and working arrangements and carer workplace support through the Employee Assistance Program and Carers' Career Development Assistance Fund (CCDAF).

The Employee Assistance Program providers are able to offer advice and assistance on a broad range of personal and work related issues.

The CCDAF supports staff with caring responsibilities who require support to attend and participate in significant national or international conferences, workshops or symposia that contribute to their careers. CCDAF grants of up to $2000 are available for reasonable costs relating to care of dependants where existing care arrangements are not available.

For further advice and assistance, please contact CBE HR.
