Resources and publications

A selection of Care's resources are available below, with new materials being added regularly. Development of this part of Care's website has been made possible by a donation from Canberra Consumers Inc (CC). Having been established in the early 1960s CC wound up its operations as a not-for-profit, volunteer consumer body in mid-2005. Care recognises the important role that CC played in the development of consumer issues in the ACT and nationally over its 40 year life span.

A selection of Care's resources are available and downloadable through the links below. They are made for informational purposes only and are not intended to be taken as legal or financial advice. Please contact Care on 1800 007 007 if you need more information or assistance.
