Connecting and supporting carers who live in Sutherland Shire
This group meets monthly and aims to connect Carers to their community of fellow Carers who offer strength, understanding and support in their Carer journey.
This group is not currently running due to funding shortages.
Carer Wellbeing Groups are flexible in delivery to respond to all carers attending and is based on practical mindfulness techniques and building resilience. This is a safe space where Carers can relax enough to share and grow with other Carers who understand the unique challenges of the carer journey. Community Connection with other Carers is an essential ingredient in reducing isolation and promoting self care to increase general health for overtaxed Carers. It is about finding easy practical ways to decrease the stress associated with being a Carer.
