National Carers Week 14th – 18th October 2018

A carer is someone who provides care to a family member or friend who needs support, supervision and assistance with everyday living tasks. Carers are often not aware of the valued role they are providing in supporting that person to live in their community as independently as possible. Anyone can become a carer at any time.

National Carers Week is a time to recognise carers and raise community awareness about the contribution they provide to our community. It also provides the opportunity for carers to meet other carers through local event held throughout Victoria.

Today marks 100 days until the Victoria State election.

Community health services have a unique understanding of the people we serve, informing our ability to develop localised responses to social and health issues. We deliver primary health, human services and community-based support to meet local community need.
