This action research project tracked the development of the Brotherhood of St Laurence pilot program, Caring for Carers, which aimed to support people caring for someone with dementia..

Feedback from carers and staff enabled continuous improvement over the program's three phases. Caring for Carers received support from an individual donor, the Portland House Foundation and the Hector Waldron Pride Charitable Trust.
