The Voice – Carers Victoria

Welcome to
The Voice October
It’s our favourite time of year! National Carers Week is fast approaching and runs from 16 to 22 October. It is a time for all Australians to recognise and celebrate the important contributions the 2.65 million unpaid carers make to their families and our community. See our events page for all the ways you can get involved.

National Carers Week is also the perfect time to join our advocacy campaign in the lead-up to the Victorian State Election. You could invite a political candidate to your National Carers Week event, post about carers on social media or set up a meeting with your local state member of parliament. Click here for all the advice and resources you will need.

We also have new sessions available for carers to register for our popular Carer Wellbeing and Connection program, with some exclusively available for men. Scroll down to find out more.

Happy reading
The Carers Victoria Team
