National Carers Week 2023 is a time to recognise and celebrate Australia’s unpaid carers who provide care and support to a family member or friend.

The theme Millions of Reasons to Care, aims to shine a spotlight on the 2.65 million carers around the country who are so frequently left in the shadows of the person they care for.

Carers need the ongoing support of all Australians – from government to businesses, classrooms to families, and medical professionals to communities. National Carers Week will run from Sunday, October 15, to Saturday, October 21.
