Welcome to our Spring newsletter. We are gearing up for our busiest time of the year with Dementia Awareness Month in September and Mental Health Week and Carers Week in October. We hope that you will come along and join us to celebrate and recognise the 2.7 million Australians who provide care and support to a family member or friend with a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is elderly and frail. The theme for this year’s National Carers Week celebrations is ‘Carers Count’. Carers make an enormous contribution to those they care for and to their local communities.  Freecall 1800 052 222
