Support for carers

If you are caring for someone receiving HACC services, you may be interested in attending the City’s carer support services. The Carers group offers the chance to regularly get together for networking, information sharing, social support and some laughter. We provide speakers on topics of interest, carers in the group provide support for each other and we also offer respite trips to provide a break from the responsibility of looking after someone and recharging your batteries. This is also an opportunity for carers to share their experiences with others and have some fun.
