Carers Week is a national awareness week held across Australia during October each year. This year the dates are October 16-22. Activities are held in each state and territory which focus on celebrating caring and information and support for carers. Activities are mostly held during the day, so access by working carers may be limited. If you have a flexible and supportive workplace, it may be worth asking your employer if you can take time off to attend.
