‘What makes your life better?’ Writing Competition

What makes your life better?

It can be hard to describe… it could be a person, a place, a moment, or something you love.

Writing amplifies your voice, and your voice can have a real and positive impact on others.

This National Carers Week 2019 (13-19 October), we asked carers ‘what makes your life better?’ in .

Grab a pen and paper, think of the things that improve the quality of your life, share your story, and help raise awareness of the important role carers play in our communities.

The winner, Tamara Standley, was our special guest at the Carers Week Launch and Gala Lunch on Friday, 11 October. You can read Tamara’s winning entry below.

“My tribe .. The ones that make you feel the most you. The ones who lift you up to help you remember who you are. The group of people who both challenge and inspire you. They are the ones that even if you don’t get to see them face to face that often, you see them heart to heart. When you find those people cherish them. We cannot do this alone. ” – Tamara Standley

Each entry will be shown at regional Carers Week events throughout Queensland in addition to an exhibition of the entries at the People’s Gallery, Brisbane City Hall.
