'We don't fit in' - the struggle over Funded Family Care

From Checkpoint, 6:08 pm on 4 December 2020

Even though they do it with love, families looking after those with serious disabilities is a tough job, and the carers say the task is made even harder because they're being ignored by the government and those who are supposed to assist them.

Catherine Hutton has been investigating the options and the struggles for severely disabled children and their families. 

This documentary was written and presented by Catherine Hutton and produced by Philippa Tolley, William Ray and Veronica Schmidt. 

It was made with funding from the 2019 Voyager Media Awards NIB senior health journalism scholarship.
