From Morning Report, 8:35 am on 18 May 2020

People who look after children who cannot be cared for by their own parents will receive more money from July.

Around 14,000 caregivers look after more than 22,000 children, both inside and outside the state care system. In the Budget announced last week, there's an additional $210 million over four years for those caregivers.

Tracey Martin is Minister for Children.
