Grants to celebrate National Carers Week 2022

National Carers Week Grants returned in 2022 thanks to ongoing funding from the NSW Government’s Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ).

National Carers Week will be held from 16 – 22 October 2022. Grants were made available for carer support groups and organisations who applied from across New South Wales to celebrate and recognise the contribution of family and friend carers in their local community by holiding local events and activities.

Carers NSW is pleased to share the National Carers Week Events Calendar for 2022 below, which includes various activities held across New South Wales. In line with National Carers Week Grant funding, these events and activities aim to provide a great experience for those involved, whilst also celebrating and recognising carers across NSW.

Grant applications

The application window for National Carers Week Grants for 2022 has closed.

Grant applicants were notified in August 2022 if they had been successful or unsuccessful in securing a National Carers Week Grant.

If you have applied for a grant on behalf of a group or organisation that does not have an ABN, you are required to submit a Statement by a Supplier Form and a Donation Application Form. Both forms are available for download below.

The Frequently Asked Questions document is also available below.

Carers NSW looks forward to seeing the many ways in which grant applicants will celebrate and recognise carers across NSW in 2022.
