Unpaid carers come from all walks of life. They provide unpaid care and support to family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue or are frail aged.
With more than 2.6 million unpaid carers in Australia, chances are you, or someone you know, may be a carer.
