Carers WA are committed to ensuring the health and safety of our carers, their families, staff and the wider community. We continue to follow the advice from health authorities regarding COVID-19.
With restrictions easing in WA, Carers WA will be re-commencing some of our face-to-face services and events. We continue to offer support to carers over the phone, via videoconference and by email, as well as online support groups and webinars.
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.
Previously planned events for Carers Week 2020 have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and at this stage are not going ahead.
This October, we encourage Western Australians to join our #ShareYouCare celebrations instead.
