Carers Week is the national awareness raising week for Australia’s 2.6 million carers. We want all Australians to know about carers! The campaign this year is Be Care Aware and encourages people to get to know more about unpaid family carers, who they are, what they do and how they can be supported. Unpaid carers come from all walks of life. They provide unpaid care and support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue or are frail aged. With more than 2.6 million unpaid carers in Australia, chances are you, or someone you know, may be a carer. Find out more by visiting website: http://www.carersaustralia.com.au/events/carers-week/
The Liverpool Shire Council has planned a number of activities to show our appreciation to our valuable carers. For more information contact Council on 6746 1755 or Kay Wheeler on 6746 2506.
