Australia counts on Carers

It is estimated that the unpaid carers of Australia spend an incredible 36 million hours every week providing care and support to members of family, friends and community who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, frail or elderly.

Over the course of a year, carers' effort have been valued at $60.3 billion.
