National Carers Week (October 11th to October 17th)

It's National Carers Week! Smiley Happy
This week is particularly close to my heart because I am a carer. I know a lot of people in our community are also carers. This week is all about acknowledging our contributions. Heart
One in ten Australians are unpaid carers and we provide billions of dollars worth of care. Sadly, caring can limit our ability to get paid work or obtain an education. It also hasn't been easy caring during a pandemic, that's for sure.
To all the carers out there: You're doing a great job! Smiley Happy


Here are some carer-specific resources:
Resources to support young carers from ReachOut

A bunch of online events for carers during this week by Carers NSW
