National Carers Week recognises the outstanding role that carers play in the community. Each year carers save the Government $60.3 billion through their caring role.
National Carers Week is an opportunity to raise awareness of and show appreciation for those in caring roles. Events will take place around the country to celebrate the enormous contribution of carers.

Carer Support Group Activity Grants
We have had many queries so far about this year’s Carers Support Group activity grants for National Carers Week 2019. Imminent funding changes to Carers Victoria services has resulted in a review of this grant application process. We are still working through the details and will send an update to all Carer Support Groups members about the application process at the end of July 2019. Successful applicants of the grant will be notified by 23 August, leaving time to plan events.
Thank you for your patience and support.
