We support carers in the NT

Are you a carer?

Are you a carer?

A lot of people think a carer is like a support worker who gets paid for it—but that’s not the case. A carer can be young or old; they can care for someone full time or for a couple of hours a day. They can be family or friends or neighbours or colleagues. And they don’t get paid for it.

Carers Week

Sunday 15th - Saturday 21st October 2017

National Carers Week is about recognising and celebrating the outstanding contribution unpaid carers make

Anyone at any time can become a carer. National Carers Week is an opportunity to educate and raise awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles.

Carers make an enormous contribution to our communities and their caring roles are valued at $60.3 billion annually – more than $1 billion per week. National Carers Week 2017 provides you with a chance to learn about carers and caring in Australia.
