National Carers Week is 14-20 October 2018
Anyone at any time can become a carer and National Carers Week is an opportunity to raise community awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles.
Carers make an enormous contribution to our communities as well as our national economy. Should all carers decide to stop performing their caring role, it would cost the country $60.3 billion per year to replace those supports – that’s over $1 billion per week.
MyCareSpace is proud to support all carers and have enormous admiration for the dedicateion, energy and strength we witness in the carers of our community. You can read more about Carers Week on the Carers Australia website.
Here are ways to take part in this celebration:
