Did you know, Australia has over 2.7 million unpaid carers, which accounts for 12% of the population?
Carers are an integral part of Australia's health system and are the foundation of our disability, palliative and community care systems. They provide unpaid emotional, social and/or financial support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness and frail age.
Moonee Valley City Council has programs, events and resources to educate and promote carers' health and overall wellbeing. We also offer respite opportunities for the people they care for.
