Kick start National Carers Week with Carers Victoria

Join us on Monday 11 October to celebrate the launch of National Carers Week 2021. You’ll hear a special message for carers from Minister for Carers the Hon. Luke Donnellan MP, find out more about the Carer Gateway and meet Carers Victoria’s new CEO Judith Abbott. Wrap up the afternoon on a lighter note as we chat with comedian Georgie Carroll, known for her roles on The Project, Have You Been Paying Attention and Talkin’ Bout Your Gen.

Enjoy a cuppa on us! Be among the first to register to get your free afternoon tea kit. All attendees go in the draw to win some great prizes to keep you entertained during this extended period of time at home, including an iPad and Disney Plus subscriptions.
