Share your own story

If you’re a carer, we want to hear your caring story – the more we share, the louder our voice will be! If you’re not a carer, we still want to hear why you think carers are so important to our communities.


We will not publish any stories with offensive language or disrespectful content, and ask that all submissions be respectful. We recommend a maximum of 200 words per entry.

By sharing your story with Carers Australia, you are consenting to the use of your story as part of our advocacy work to achieve better outcomes for unpaid carers. Any stories used for advocacy purposes will not include names or identifying information in order to maintain privacy. To read the Carers Australia Privacy Policy please click here.

If you choose to include a photo in your submission, you give Carers Australia permission to use that photo in our advocacy work. If you do not want your photo used publicly, please do not upload one.

If you decide after submission you no longer want your carer story or image to be used in our advocacy work, please contact us via and we will remove the relevant material within 2 business days.
