National Carers Week (14-20 October) recognises and celebrates the outstanding contribution Australia’s 2.7 million unpaid carers make to our country.

Carers rarely get a chance to take time out and relax. National Carers Week 2018 on the Northern Beaches includes a range of free activities focused on getting together and having fun.

If you’re a carer or you know someone who’s a carer, let them know about these free activities created just for them!
