Member for Murray Adrian Piccoli has encouraged local carer support groups and other organisations to apply for a grant of up to $250 to run events and activities for carers during National Carers Week.
There are over 850,000 unpaid carers in NSW, including over 100,000 carers who are under the age of 25.
Carers provide regular support to people, often family members, who need it because they have disability, chronic illness, mental illness, dementia or are frail aged.
