Carers WA are committed to the health and safety of carers, service providers and other members of the community and to minimise risk to the people we support Carers WA will be suspending events and face-to-face activities across WA.
Carers WA will continue to offer support to carers over the phone, email and via videoconference where possible. Face-to-face services will resume where safe to do so following Health Department advice.
We encourage our members to keep updated by following us on social media channels and subscribing to email communications.
Carers Week is a national awareness raising week held annually in the third week of October.
Carers Australia and the network of 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.
Carers Week 2020 is scheduled to occur from Sunday 11th October to Saturday 17th October.
Carers WA offers grants for care-related organisations and carer support groups to host their own event for carers during Carers Week. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Carers Week Activity Grants for 2020 will not proceed this year.
During Carers Week, Carers WA along with a range of care-related organisations and support groups host a variety of events throughout the state. It is likely that events for Carers Week 2020 will be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and we will continue to keep the caring community updated as the situation unfolds.
Carers WA welcome your involvement in National Carers Week. Organisations who wish to partner with Carers WA to reach a targeted audience and participate in a campaign that will bring together a range of stakeholders within the caring community are welcome to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsorship options.
