Nominate A Carer
It’s time to recognise local carers or organisations supporting carers for the 2018 NSW Carers Awards. Carers are everyday people – family members, friends, neighbours and work colleagues. It is important we send a strong message to carers within our local community that we appreciate all they do.
Nominations close on Friday, August 10. For information about the awards and how to nominate go to careforacarer.nsw.gov.au.
It’s also time to acknowledge rural women volunteers with the 2018 NSW Hidden Treasures Honour Roll. Nominating someone for this honour is a great way to celebrate women and to promote the valuable role of volunteering. The NSW government is proud to support this initiative, by recognising the 1.7 million volunteers in NSW, who give more than 241 million hours of voluntary work to their communities.
