Care to work? Expanding choice and access to workforce participation for mature-aged women carers

Past project

This project aims to explore an integrated suite of policies for a preventative approach to enhance mature-aged women’s participation in the labour market, with a particular focus on fostering employment choices for women with current or past informal caring responsibilities. The project builds on work to be undertaken in 2011 for an Australian Research Council Linkage project entitled Carers and social inclusion: new frameworks, evidence and policy lessons.
