Carers Week Activity Grants

Carers Week is a national awareness raising week held annually in the third week of October.

Carers WA offers grants for care-related organisations and carer support groups to host their own event for carers during Carers Week. Those we support must either be a small community group, not-for-profit organisation or local government authority to be eligible. Government departments and individuals are not eligible for grants. Regional, rural and remote organisations are encouraged to apply. If you would like to host an event for carers during Carers Week, you can apply for a $500 or $750 grant to help you hold your event. The event must be held in WA during Carers Week and be attended by family carers only.
