Carer Workshops

Carer education is an important way in which we aim to support you.  New carers in particular sometimes say they felt a bit overwhelmed at first as there can be a lot to understand. 

Our workshops are usually free, informative and supportive.  If you wish, there is time to chat and share ideas with one another. Qualified professionals run the workshops. 

New workshops are added here throughout the year.  We also list sessions from other organisations, such as Dementia Australia and local community health groups.
