Camden Carers

Camden Council recognises the important role that carers play in our community. Carers come from all walks of life, cultural backgrounds and age groups. For many, caring is a 24 hour a day job with emotional, physical and financial impacts that can also affect their participation in employment, education and community activities.

From 2011 to 2016 Camden's population increased by 21,510 people (37.9%). One of the largest changes in target groups in this period of time was in the unpaid care group (+2018 people).

Carers Week October 2020

A carer is someone who provides ongoing, unpaid support to people who need help because of disability, mental illness, chronic or terminal illness, dementia or frail age.  Relatives and friends who provide such support and assistance are carers.

In celebration of National Carers Week, Council will offer a variety of activities and events to recognise the unsung heroes in our community who provide care and support to family, friends and community.  The Carers Week Program will be available from September 2020.
