Home News & Events #ShareYouCare Celebrations


Each year, Carers Week runs during the third week of October (10th– 16th October 2021) and provides the Australian community with a chance to recognise the contribution and courage of carers. Over 2.65 million Australians provide help and support to a family member or friend, saving the Australian community more than $77.9 billion per year.

This October we are asking 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.

How Western Australians can get involved
