NATIONAL CARERS WEEK IS ABOUT RECOGNISING AND CELEBRATING THE OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION AUSTRALIA’S 2.7 MILLION UNPAID CARERS MAKE TO OUR NATION.
National Carers Week recognises the outstanding role that carers play in the community.
With 1 in 8 Australian employees in a caring role, becoming a carer-friendly workplace and providing flexible working conditions for carers makes sense for employers and employees can help support these carers. Each year carers save the Government $60.3 billion through their caring role.
National Carers Week provides you with a chance to show your appreciation and learn about carers and caring in Australia.
