Carers NT offers a series of activities for carers, with the different options listed below.
Peer Support Groups
Carers NT provides registered carers with the opportunity to attend peer support groups which provide a supportive, comfortable and welcoming environment where carers are able to discuss day to day issues or topics of interest and collectively seek solutions through mutual support which are facilitated by Carer Peer Support Workers.
Monthly Carer Workshops
Carers NT is excited to announce our upcoming series of Carer Wellbeing Workshops and Luncheons, set to take place in Darwin and Alice Springs over the next six months (January – June). Our workshops will cover a range of topics aimed at promoting self-care and enhancing overall wellbeing led by experienced facilitators – Amy Hetherington and John McBryde. This will also offer a supportive environment where carers can build connections, find encouragement, and enjoy a delicious meal together.
Stay tuned and check out our Facebook page for more details on workshop dates, topics, and registration information. We look forward to welcoming you to our upcoming events in Darwin and Alice Springs!
Young Carers Program
The Young Carers Program aims to provide support and respite to individuals up to the age of 25 who take care of a friend or family member. We aim to facilitate connections with their peers and to foster a sense of support and understanding to young carers. Through various programs and activities, the program endeavours to offer young carers a break from their caregiving responsibilities and engage them in enjoyable and rejuvenating experiences.
