The NSW Department of Family and Community Services funds Carers NSW to provide grants of $300.00 AUD to carer support groups and organisations to plan events and activities for carers during National Carers Week, which will run from 14-20 October 2018.

Organising an event is a wonderful way to acknowledge anyone caring for a family member or friend and to give them a break from the responsibilities of their caring role. Many events attract new carers to carer support groups and planning an event is a great way of reaching out to hidden carers in your area.
