Carer Events

Carer peer support activities aim to support carers to help you to stay up-to-date and also to manage your own wellbeing.

Activities are usually free, informative and supportive. As we transition to the NDIS, we will keep you up-to-date with what is on offer in our region and/or make sure you register to receive the fortnightly Respite South newsletter which will list events coming up.
