Carers Week 2017
10 Oct 2017

Intereach will mark Carers Week 2017 with a number of free events across the district.

The events will celebrate the enormous contribution carers make to the local community as well as giving carers the opportunity to enjoy themselves and meet other people in their situation.

Respite care can be arranged if required.

Intereach Senior Manager – Carer Support and Connecting Community Deborah Russell said that around 12 per cent of the population are carers.

“Carers are everywhere within our communities, the chances are you either are a carer or know a carer. Caring can be rewarding but it can also be very hard work. Sometimes caring responsibilities mean the carer can miss out on socialising, relaxing or enjoying a hobby. This is why we want to celebrate and thank our carers for their dedication to their families and friends.”

Intereach offer a variety of services to support Carers. For more information, to RSVP or to arrange respite care, contact Intereach Commonwealth Respite Carelink Centre (CRCC) on 1800 052 222, email or visit
