The Continence Carer of the Year Award acknowledges the important but often overlooked role of the 2.65 million at-home carers across Australia. Many are responsible for the complex role of providing bladder and bowel care.

In financial terms, the replacement value of all unpaid care in Australia is estimated at a staggering $77.9 billion per year.
