Your feedback is important to help us plan programs and activities for our Carer's Hub.
Living & Learning Nillumbik has launched a Carer's Hub which will provide access for carers of all ages to a diverse range of programs and referral services specifically designed around carer’s individual needs and caring responsibilities.
Key focus areas are:
· to provide social connection opportunities with other carers to come together in a relaxed and informal environment
· health and wellbeing activities including art, clay, music, yoga, and mindfulness sessions (various free and subsidised sessions available)
· subsidised activities to support skills and job readiness including career mentoring and one-off workshops such as resume-writing
· training support to transition into employment or support flexible employment opportunities whilst maintaining their caring role
· support to establish micro businesses and networking opportunities
Are you a carer?
A carer is someone who provides unpaid care and support to family members and/or friends with a disability, mental illness, chronic health issue or an older person with care needs. They are parents, children, partners, other relatives and friends who assist with a variety of personal care, health care, transport, administrative support, cognitive emotional tasks, household chores and other activities.
