Supporting families

Family responsibilities are diverse and can include elder care, caring for people with disabilities, partners as well as responsibilities associated with their extended families.

ANU endorses a definition of family to be inclusive of a range of relationships and structures, which may include one or more of the following: biological, marriage, opposite- and same-sex and de facto relationships, adoption and dependency.

Carers’ Career Development Assistance Fund

The University recognises that many staff have caring responsibilities that may impact on their access to opportunities for the development of their careers.

The CCDAF is for individual academic and professional staff with caring responsibilities who require support to participate in significant national or international conferences, workshops or symposia that contribute to their careers.
