NSW Carers Awards recognise valuable contribution of unpaid carers

Goulburn MP Pru Goward has announced nominations are open for the NSW Carers Awards.

The NSW Carers Awards aims to recognise and raise awareness of the valuable contribution unpaid carers make to the people they care for and the wider community.

“I encourage anyone who knows a dedicated carer in the local area to put fourth their nomination so their extraordinary contribution can be celebrated,” Ms Goward said.

Organisations, employers and education providers who demonstrate best practice in supporting carers can also be nominated for an Award.

The 2017 NSW Carers Awards will coincide with this year’s Carers Week, which will run October 15 to October 21.

“There are approximately 905,000 carers in NSW, who provide unconditional support for those in their care on a daily basis,” Ms Goward said.

Entries close on August 31.
