When was the Act last reviewed?

    The first review of the Act was undertaken in 2011 and a report for that review was tabled in the South Australian Parliament in November 2012. The review broadly found that:

    • Carers reported better recognition and support than before the Act started.
    • There was some inconsistency by some organisations in meeting their obligations.
    • Several factors prevented carers from fully benefitting from the Act.
    • Some changes to the Act may be useful.
