Anyone at any time can become a carer. Australia’s 2.7 million carers make an enormous contribution to our communities, with their caring roles being valued at $60.3 billion annually – more than $1 billion per week.
Each year, National Carers Week provides an opportunity to educate and raise awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles. So join us in spreading the word and letting the community know why we care.
AFLW star, Moanna Hope, cares for her sister, Vinny, and you can meet them both via our new video!
Check out the Australian Government’s Carer Gateway – a national online and phone service providing practical information to support carers. This interactive tool helps carers connect to local support services.
