National Carers Week is about recognising and celebrating the outstanding contribution unpaid carers make to our nation.
There are over 2.7 million family and friend carers in Australia providing 36 million hours of care and support every week* to a family member or friend who has a disability, mental illness, drug and/or alcohol dependency, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is frail. The replacement value of that unpaid care is $1.1 billion per week.
Anyone at any time can become a carer. National Carers Week is an opportunity to educate and raise awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles.
This year, National Carers Week will run from Sunday 13 to Saturday 19 October 2019.
