Media Releases

National Carers Week 2023 is a time to recognise and celebrate Australia’s unpaid carers who provide care and support to a family member or friend.
The theme Millions of Reasons to Care, aims to shine a spotlight on the 2.65 million carers around the country who are so frequently left in the shadows of the person they care for.

In a collective show of strength, buildings and monuments across the nation’s states and territories will shine blue throughout the week, celebrating Australia’s 2.65 million unpaid carers.

Australia’s unpaid carers are twice as likely to have low wellbeing compared to other adults, according to latest figures.
Results of the 2023 Carer Wellbeing Survey show carers continue to be at high risk of poor wellbeing and health. Of the 5,881 Australian carers surveyed, 58.3% reported low wellbeing, a significant increase from last year’s 52.6%.
