National Carers Week runs from 11 to 17 October and is a time to celebrate carers in our community by acknowledging their significant contribution providing support to someone who requires care.

This National Carers Week is perhaps the most important one so far…it gives us the opportunity to shine a light on what carers do, and to celebrate the life changing impact they have on the lives of so many Victorians.

Celebrate carers week together with a range of online activities to join, check out Carers Victoria events page or carersweek.com.au/events for all the events happening throughout the week.

Carer wellbeing is of vital importance, and assistance is available, carers can contact a general peak body such as Carers Victoria on 1800 514 845, for advice and referral.
