Carers Week 2017

15 October 2017 - 21 October 2017

This year National Carers Week runs from 15 – 21 October.

It is a great time to celebrate carers and thank them for their dedication to their families and friends.


It is also a time to help educate the wider community on the role of the carer and remind people that carers are everywhere within our community (1 in 10 Victorians is in a caring role). We need to acknowledge them.

Carers come in all shapes and sizes from a variety of backgrounds, with a variety of tasks and jobs. Being a carer does not define a person, but it can shape a person. 

This year Carers Victoria wants to celebrate all that carers are and help celebrate the enormous contribution they make to the community.
