Caring for Carers Australia (CCA) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to honouring and acknowledging Carers and the enormous effort they show their loved ones each and every day.
The need for Carers is at an all-time high with one-in-eight Australians providing informal care. According to the Deloitte Access Economics Report, The Economic Value of Informal Care, the demand for carers will double in some areas in the next seven years.
Australians currently provide 1.9 billion hours in unpaid care in a single year looking after family members and friends who are aged, chronically ill or have a disability. We need to honour and acknowledge Carers to support them in the invaluable service they provide to not only our loved ones but to our communities.
If you would like to support our Carers across Australia and help them get one day off, visit Caring for Carers Australia at the 2018 Care Expo where you can donate towards to the One Day Off campaign.
It’s just downright un-Australian to not have a day off, so let’s help give them one day off.
