Carers Week

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.

#ShareYouCare this Carers Week

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.

How to be part of the #ShareYouCare celebrations

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

  • Share that they support a family member or friend in an unpaid caring role.
  • Share that they care about the contribution unpaid family carers make to the community.
