Reporting required under the Carers’ Recognition Act 2005

The Carers’ Recognition Act 2005 is deemed applicable for the following: Department of Human Services, Department for Education, Department for Health and Wellbeing, Department for Innovation and Skills, Department of Infrastructure and Transport, South Australia Police and TAFE SA.

Section 7: Compliance or non-compliance with section 6 of the Carers Recognition Act 2005 and (b) if a person or body provides relevant services under a contract with the organisation (other than a contract of employment), that person's or body's compliance or non-compliance with section 6.

The AGD recognises and supports the principles of the South Australian Carers Charter. Employees who are carers are supported in identifying appropriate flexible working arrangements and through the AGD policy to access special leave with pay to care for dependents.

Aboriginal cultural awareness training is also mandated for all employees which, among other topics, addresses the issues of family obligation and community responsibility in the context of the role of carers.
