Carers Week is a national awareness raising week held annually in the third week of October. Carers Week 2018 will be held from Sunday 14th to Saturday 20th October.
Carers Australia and Carers Associations invite all Australians to be part of Carers Week. Carers Week is Australia’s annual celebration of carers and is held annually in the third week of October. Carers Week aims to raise awareness of carers, the caring role and relationships, and carer supports and services.
This Carers Week, we’re asking the question: why do you care? If you’re a carer, you can share your caring story here – the more we share, the louder our voice will be! If you’re not a carer, we still want to hear why you think unpaid carers are so important to our communities.
Many great events will be conducted across the nation during Carers Week, including morning teas, launches, exhibitions, seminars and media talkback.
