There are over 2.65 million carers in Australia and it is estimated a total of nearly 2.2 billion hours of unpaid care were provided during 2020. The replacement value of unpaid care in Australia is now estimated at over $1.5 billion per week.
Many carers are in poor health themselves, experience financial hardship and social isolation and encounter one of the lowest rates of well-being in Australia.
