Held annually in the third week in October, National Carers Week recognises and celebrates carers within our community, increases public awareness of the valuable role of carers and the issues affecting them.
Throughout the Week, Carers NT host events which provide a platform to highlight the significant, but often unheard, roles of carers, an opportunity to recognise achievements of carers in the Northern Territory and promote services available to Carers.
Carers Week 2018 will be held from Sunday 14 to Saturday 20 October.
