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.
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.
This October we encourage Western Australians to do one of two things!
