NATIONAL CARERS WEEK


National Carers Week is about recognising and celebrating the outstanding contribution unpaid carers make to our nation.
Anyone at any time can become a carer. Australia’s 2.7 million carers make an enormous contribution to our communities, with their caring roles being valued at $60.3 billion annually – more than $1 billion per week.
Each year, National Carers Week provides an opportunity to educate and raise awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles. So join us in spreading the word and letting the community know why we care.
 
We extend a very special thank you to all those who care or have cared for loved ones with HD.
