#Carers2016

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. National Carers Week is an opportunity to educate and raise awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles. Carers make an enormous contribution to our communities and their caring roles are valued at $60.3 billion annually – more than $1 billion per week. National Carers Week provides you with a chance to learn about carers and caring in Australia.
