National Carers Week 2016
October 16-22 is National Carers Week.
Inverell Home Support Program would like to extend their appreciation to all of the
wonderful carers in our community who provide countless hours of their time caring for
There are over 2.8 million family and friend carers in Australia providing 36 million hours of
care and support every week to a family member or friend who has a disability, mental
illness, drug and/or alcohol dependency, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is
frail. The value of that unpaid care is $1.1 billion per week.
The community counts on carers, so please recognise and celebrate the outstanding
contribution carers make.
