National Carers Week is about recognising and celebrating the outstanding contribution unpaid carers make to our nation.
There are over 2.7 million unpaid carers in Australia providing care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, mental illness, alcohol or drug dependency, long term health condition or who is frail due to age.
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.
This year, National Carers Week will run from Sunday 11 to Saturday 17 October 2020.
To celebrate carers and recognise the significant contribution carers make each and every day, Carers NSW is hosting a range of online wellbeing workshops and webinars during National Carers Week, 11 – 17 October 2020.
Carers from across NSW are invited to join a range of free online webinars and self-care and wellbeing workshops for carers during Carers Week 2020.
