CareWise was developed by national non-profit Carers NZ to help carers keep working, and to help employers retain the 1 in 8 staff in every workplace who have caring responsibilities.

Carers NZ provides information, advice, and support for New Zealanders who care for family members who are frail, unwell, or have a chronic condition or disability. We can all expect to give or receive family care during our lives, and almost 90% of New Zealand’s 490,000+ carers are of workforce age (15 to 64).

CareWise supports their wellbeing and sustainability by making it easy for employers to be carer friendly. This is more important than ever as the country recovers from Covid-19.

CareWise was developed with assistance from the Ministry of Social Development, and guidance from Business NZ, employers, members of the International Association of Carer Organizations, and many others.

We thank them for supporting our country’s working family carers.
