Carer Support

We offer counselling, information and support to Carers:

  • Peer support groups
  • Information and one-to-one advice
  • Informative guest speakers
  • Skill building workshops
  • Retreats and excursions

We have an active program of support groups for Carers, which meet regularly in various towns of the Lower North. These groups are designed to provide mutual support among Carers, and often also feature guest speakers and activities of interest to group members, as well as workshops and information about caring.

Several groups are for those caring for people with particular disabilities, eg Parkinson’s disease, and information and assistance is provided on development of caring skills in these areas.

We have an active program of activities, excursions and overnight retreats so Carers can unwind and relax in pleasant surroundings and with people of like mind.
