Carers Week

Carers Week

Let’s celebrate Carers Week!

Carers Week is an opportunity to:

  • Say thank you to our 53 000 District carers who for the contribution you make each and every day to support the health and wellbeing of our community
  • Recognise the 12% of District staff who balance their carer responsibilities with their work in the District
  • Acknowledge the additional challenges carers face during COVID-19

You’re a carer if you provide care and support to a family member, partner or friend with:

  • a disability
  • a mental illness
  • an alcohol or drug dependency
  • a long term health condition, or
  • who is frail due to age.

In the past, we’ve held these special events:
