Carers Week

Carers Australia and the network of Carers Associations invite all Australians to be part of Carers Week. Carers Week is Australia’s 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.

National Carers Week will take place from Sunday 10th to Saturday 16th October 2021.

#ShareYouCare 2021

This year we are asking West Australians to #ShareYouCare and show support for unpaid carers within the community.

Taking part is simple:

  • Download the share you care sign 
  • Take a photo of yourself/group holding the Share You Care sign
  • Post the photo on social media sharing your support for carers. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #ShareYouCare.
