There is no reward and little recognition. But they do it, day in and day out. Now the Sir Roden Cutler Charities aims to recognise carers with Search For A Carer's Story. Lady Joan Cutler, senior advisor and board member of Sir Roden Cutler Chari- ties, and Ros Packer, the 2008 Sir Roden Cutler medallist, have joined forces to ask carers for their stories. ''We both feel that carers all deserve a medal for what they do and what they endure every day,'' Mrs Packer said. ''We want them to tell us their story and what would make a difference in their lives.'' Carers are asked to send their stories of 250 words or less to Sir Roden Cutler Charities by August 31. A total of 32 gift vouchers valued at $500 will be given away, with the overall national winner receiving a further $5000 in vouchers. Each story must be attached to the official Search For A Carer's Story form which can be downloaded from www.sirrodencutler charities.org.au To find out more visit www.childcarerebate.gov.au or call the Family Assistance Office on 13 61 50.
