MULGOA MP Tanya Davies has congratulated Janmaree Martin and the Nepean Area Disabilities Organisation Carer Support Group in St Marys for receiving local carers awards.
Ms Martin provides most of the care for four members of her family, who rely on her for their quality of life, and yet she still finds time to advocate for improved respite care for others in her community.
"She is a worthy recipient and I congratulate her for her outstanding contribution," Mrs Davies said.
The Nepean Area Disabilities Organisation runs a 20-strong support group for carers of people with disabilities.
They provide practical solutions for carers who may be missing out on important services or having difficulty providing the service.
"I congratulate the staff of the NADO Carer Support Group led by [chief executive] Denise Heath for their tremendous efforts in supporting carers in our community," Mrs Davies said.
"These awards are presented to individuals and organisations to celebrate the contribution they make."
