Grants available for National Carers Week

Carers NT is again encouraging organisations and carers groups to apply for funding to host an activity during National Carers Week that will create awareness about who carers are, how they contribute to the broader community and why they care.

National Carers Week is a time to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution that Australia's 2.86 million unpaid carers make to our nation.

Anyone at any time can become a carer and National Carers Week is an opportunity to raise community awareness among all Australians about the diversity of carers and their caring roles.

Carers make an enormous contribution to our communities as well as our national economy. National Carers Week provides you with a chance to show your appreciation and learn about carers and caring in Australia.

National Carers Week 2019 will be celebrated throughout Australia from 13 - 19 October 2019.

Supported by the Northern Territory Government, Carers NT provides grants of up to $300 to carer support groups and organisations to host an event. Events may include morning teas, BBQs, picnics, guest speakers or a training event.

For more information and to apply, download a 2019 National Carers Week Grant Application Form.

Applications close 30 August 2019.
