Carers Week

Next week (13-19th October) is Carers Week. It's a time to recognise the role of the 2.6 million unpaid carers in our community who care for a loved one.

It is said carers are the cornerstone of Australia’s mental health, aged, disability and palliative care systems. Without the support of unpaid family carers these systems would simply collapse.

There are a number of activities on during the week to celebrate and recognise the important role these carers play in our community. One of these events is Carers Day Out which will be held in Sydney's Martin Place. 

The day will feature some fun activities and time out for carers. Activities will include;
  • Gardening Workshop
  • Introduction to Art Therapy
  • Laughter Wellbeing
  • Tea Ceremony
If you can't make it to the Sydney event, there are a number of other events around the state that you can attend. To find out the closest event to you visit the link:
