2015 NSW Carers Awards

Picture1More than one in 10 people in NSW are carers. Carers can be anyone including parents, partners, brothers, sisters, friends, sons or daughters. They provide unpaid support to those who need it because of a disability, mental illness, chronic health condition, dementia or ageing.

The NSW Carers Awards acknowledge and celebrate the significant unpaid contribution carers make to the person (or people) they care for and to the community.

A carer is not paid a wage or salary, although they may receive a pension or allowance for their caring role. Carers can be employed, at school and/or have a range of other commitments at the time they take on the role of caring.

Nominations for the 2015 NSW Carers Awards are now open visit https://facs.smartygrants.com.au/

Submissions close midnight 29 June 2015

2015 NSW Carers Awards

NSW Government says thank you to carers

Nominations are open for the 2015 NSW Carers Awards, which will recognise up to 55 individuals and organisations, plus 10 Highly Commended recipients, across NSW this year.

You can nominate individual unpaid carers who provide exceptional ongoing support to someone who needs it because of disability, chronic illness, mental ill-health, dementia or frail age and organisations that go above and beyond to support carers for a NSW Carers Award.

One in ten people in NSW are carers. They are ordinary people like your neighbours, colleagues, friends and family members and they face challenges and rewards as a result of their caring role.

With this in mind, who do you know who you’d like to see recognised with a NSW Carers Award during Carers Week this year?

You can help to show your appreciation for carers by promoting these awards through your community and networks. Posters and brochures can be obtained by contacting the Carers Awards Project Manager on 02 8753 9408 or carers-awards@facs.nsw.gov.au.

The support that carers provide to people enables them to live independent lives and is fundamental to family life and our community wellbeing. If you need any more convincing about why carers are important, it has been estimated that it would cost more than $40 billion to replace the hours of care provided by Australian carers.

Nominations are open until 29 June 2015. To be eligible, individual carers must not be paid for their caring role although they may receive a pension or government allowance (eg Carer Payment or Allowance).

For further information or to nominate a carer or organisation you know, please visit www.facs.nsw.gov.au/carersawards
