Carers are people who provide unpaid care and support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental health condition, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue or who are frail aged – anyone at any time can become a carer.
National Carers Week is an opportunity to raise community awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles.

Share your 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.
