Published online:

Update July 2020: The Funded Family Care Notice 2013 ends in September 2020, however family carers can still be paid to care for a disabled family member if the disabled family member moves to Individualised Funding or Home and Community Support Services.

This report summarises the views from families and care organisations on options to improve Funded Family Care.

The report includes themes emerging as priorities from targeted stakeholder engagement (meetings and an e-survey) on the Ministry of Health’s Funded Family Care (FFC) policy and District Health Boards paid family care policies.

A separate reference paper on the e-survey has informed the main report. It sets out the methodology, analysis of questions and a summary of the themes emerging as priorities from the e-survey. It is advisable to read both reports for the full detail of what people said.
