NSW Carer Reference Group
About Carer Reference Groups
Carer Reference Groups (CRGs) are one of the key NSW settings for carer consultation, engagement and information sharing.
The CRG provides a collaborative and interagency setting for carers to work alongside out-of-home care staff from both Family and Community Services (FACS) and non-government agencies to participate and contribute to the service system.
TThere are seven CRGs across NSW (see below table). Each CRG comprises 15-24 members who are carers from FACS and NGOs as well as FACS and NGO staff and carer organisation representatives. Meetings are generally held quarterly and discuss agenda topics relevant to carers as well as upcoming events and local and systemic issues
