Carers Week 2014
Carers Week is our key national awareness raising event. It is held in the third week of October across the nation, and this year will run from the 12 – 19 October. A participatory event held during the week will encourage people across the country to 'Take a Break for carers', in their workplaces, schools, universities, and community organisations. More information will be made available soon!
National Carer Conference
The Australian National Carer Conference will be held at the QT Hotel Gold Coast from the 16th – 18th November 2014.
The theme of the Conference, 'Keeping Carers Connected', will explore the diverse needs of carers and the capacity of service providers to meet those needs. The Conference will deliberate three main topics:
- Connecting carers to the community
- Connecting carers to services and supports
- Connecting carers with each other
This Conference will give carers the opportunity to voice what is important to them, and to provide input on national issues. To know more go to the conference website, here.
Carers Australia will again be the chief beneficiary of the Pollie Pedal charity bike ride in 2014. Dates of the event are to be confirmed.
