Carers recognised at Victoria Park Lake

By Morgan Dyer

The tireless work of carers was recognised at a lunch on Wednesday at Shepparton's Victoria Park Lake.

Celebrating National Carers Week, the free barbecue lunch paid tribute to the selfless contribution unpaid carers make in the local community.

Goulburn Valley Health, FamilyCare, Villa Maria and Wellways hosted the event and provided important information about a range of local support services carers can access.

GV Health's Deb Rachele said the afternoon was about acknowledging the financial, social and emotional impact of caring for people.
