National Carers Week will take place 15-21st October. This year, say thank you to carers and recognise the truly valuable and unpaid work they do every day to support Australian communities and the economy. The value of the caring role is estimated at $60.3 billion per year, and yet carers often experience social isolation and find it difficult to work or study. A carer-friendly Australia is one where unpaid carers are recognised and supported during and after their caring role. Find out how to get involved and view the Thank You Wall with messages of support for carers from all over Australia.
