National Carers Week, celebrated from 16–22 October 2022, 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.
National Carers Week!
More than 700,000 Victorians perform a vital role in our community by providing unpaid care for a family member or friend who needs support due to disability, mental illness or significant health or age-related issues. That number is predicted to soar to one million carers by 2025.
This year, Carers Victoria reaches its 30th anniversary, and to celebrate we are sharing carer stories that highlight the diversity of the caring experience. Help us raise awareness of the extraordinary contribution of carers by sharing their stories from our campaign. Don’t forget to tag @CarersVictoria, #Carers2022 #MillionsOfReasonsToCare #CarersCountToo
