National Carers Week is about recognising and celebrating the outstanding contribution unpaid carers make to our nation.
Anyone at any time can become a carer. National Carers Week is an opportunity to educate and raise awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles.
Carers make an enormous contribution to our communities and their caring roles are valued at $60.3 billion annually – more than $1 billion per week. National Carers Week 2017 provides you with a chance to learn about carers and caring in Australia. Carers Week 2017 will be held from Sunday 15th to Saturday 21st October 2017.
MHCTas, Headspace, the link, Hobart City Council and Playback Theatre invite you to celebrate National Carers Week with a performance by Playback Theatre, an improvisational theatre group, as audience members tell stories from their lives and then watch them enacted on stage.carers_week_flyer_v2
