National Carers Week runs from Sunday 16 to Saturday 22 October 2022 with the theme – Millions of Reasons to Care.
Millions of Reasons to Care, aims to broaden the communities understanding of the caring role, increase carer identification and provide the community with more reasons to care about carers.
This week MND NSW recognise the 2.65 million carers from across Australia who provide care and support to family members or friends, and we celebrate the many carers across the country supporting a loved one living with MND. We also recognise, and care about, the many young carers who are under the age of 25 and supporting a loved one living with MND.
