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.
Dates for Carers Week 2021 to be announced.
Previously planned events for Carers Week 2020 were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and did not go ahead. This October, we encouraged Western Australians to join our #ShareYouCare celebrations instead.
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 did not proceed this year.
Carers WA welcome your involvement in National Carers Week. Organisations who wish to partner with Carers WA are welcome to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsorship opportunities.
