This week we celebrate National Carers Week and say a sincere thank you to Australia’s 2.65 million carers for the extraordinary contribution they make.  

Caring for a loved one can be tough, not to mention in these uncertain times as we deal with the Coronavirus pandemic, but carers find the strength to support their loved ones.

They are selfless and put those who they care for first. On behalf of the Australian Government, thank you for all that you do, for the hard work and sacrifices you make each day.

I encourage everyone to join me in celebrating our carers this National Carers Week, which runs from 11 to 17 October.

Join the campaign. Visit and tell us why you care.

And if you’re a carer, don’t forget there’s always support available for you at Carer Gateway. Call 1800 422 737 or visit
