We want to acknowledge our Volunteers on National Carers Week that runs from Sunday 16 to Saturday 22 October 2022.
Millions of Reasons to Care
This year ‘Millions of Reasons to Care’ aims to broaden the awareness of the 2.65 million Australians caring for family members, friends and people in the community by highlighting the data that defines carers and the caring role. Through this, ‘Millions of Reasons to Care’, aims to broaden the communities understanding of the caring role, increase carer identification and provide the community with more reasons to care about carers.
1-in-10 Australians provide unpaid care and support to family members or friends with a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue or who are frail aged. Unpaid carers make an enormous contribution to our community as well as our economy and National Carers Week gives everyone a chance to show their appreciation.
There are FREE events happening during the week, both online and face to face in NSW and other states too.
