National Carers Week 2016
October 16, 2016 @ 8:00 am - October 22, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
National Carers Week 2016 (16 – 22 October) is a time to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution that Australia’s 2.8 million unpaid carers make to our nation.
1 in 8 Australians provide unpaid care and support to a family member or friend with a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is frail aged.
Carers make an enormous contribution to our communities as well as our national economy and National Carers Week provides you with a chance to show your appreciation.
This National Carers Week you can get involved by visiting the website and taking a couple of minutes to say Thanks, showing your support to help build a carer-friendly Australia. By doing so, you can help us demonstrate the considerable community support for Australia’s carers.
Visit the website here to see how you can get involved.
