You may know someone who is a carer, but have you thought about what this means and just how it affects these people, their families and communities?
Held annually October, Carers Week is a time for awareness about carers across Australia. The event was set up to make people aware of the important role that carers play in our community and to generate discussion about carer issues. It also gives carers the opportunity to come together for support and information.
Carers Week 2008 is an initiative of Carers Australia and funded by the Australian Government
