Thanks to funding from the NSW Department of Communities and Justice, Carers NSW are once again offering grants to organisations and carer support groups to run events or activities, either online or in person to support and celebrate carers across NSW as part of National Carers Week.
This year, National Carers Week will be held from 11-17 October 2020.
Grants of up to $300 are available to help carer support groups and organisations across NSW put on an activity or event, online or in person, to acknowledge family and friend carers in their local community.
While it is hoped that events and activities may be able to go ahead by October 2020, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, funding will be provided to support and celebrate carers through a range of approaches including events or activities either online or in person.
While it would be ideal to run events around the time of National Carers Week, to allow flexibility, this year events and activities may be run at a later date if necessary, with the funding to be spent by June 2021.
Applications close: 22 June 2020
