Join us to say thank you this National Carers Week

Back

This week marks National Carers Week, an opportunity to say thank you and acknowledge the amazing work of the more than 2.7 million carers in Australia.

Just this week carers will provide 36 million hours of unpaid care. The replacement cost of this is $1.1 billion.

We’ve partnered with numerous organisations such as Palliative Care Australia, Families Supporting Families, Beyond Blue and the Hunter Institute of Mental Health, to provide funding in support of initiatives that promote greater health and wellbeing among Australia’s carer community.

This week, you can be a part of creating a carer-friendly Australia, where unpaid carers are recognised for the work they perform for family members and friends every single day, and are supported throughout their role. 

Show your support for #carers2017 by saying thank you on Carers Australia ‘thank you wall’.
