National Carers Week 15th to 21st October 2017

During this week many not-for-profit organisations will be arranging events to thank carers for their time and dedication in providing care to individuals, families and the disadvantaged throughout the year.

If you have carers working with your service and would like to thank them during this week, then download the National Carers Week Toolkit from Carers Australia to give you ideas on how to thank these wonderful people.

“I cannot thank you enough for all the help you provide on the day and organising volunteers as well as you do. It takes heaps of pressure off me and I am very grateful. Thanks again for your continued support of our Expo.”
