Carer's Week

During National Carer's Week we're celebrating carers in our community with information sessions for carers and a show with dinner for carers and their care recipients.

Carer's Information Sessions

To celebrate National Carer's Week from 16 to 22 October 2022, Cumberland City Council Seniors and Disability Services along with Carer Gateway and Benevolent Society in partnership with Your Side will be providing free information sessions for carers.

Do you regularly look after a family member or friend who is elderly, ill or has a disability? If so, you are one of Australia’s 2.65 million carers. As a carer, you can be entitled to services that are offered by Carer Gateway.

Carer Gateway provides many services for carers with additional services for young carers. Join us in these free information sessions to find out how you can be supported on your caring journey.
