Social Support Events

Everyone deserves a break from time to time.

Regular breaks give carers time to re-energise and enjoy other activities and relationships in their life. Regular breaks help carers to keep providing the best care they can. They also give the person being cared for the opportunity to have a break too.

Carers WA offers a range of social activities including:

Linking Together

Linking Together uses local venues to support social interaction and friendship for carers. In providing regular, planned, carer focused and flexible outings at low or no cost, Linking Together seeks to allow carers the choice of attending outings and activities that are suitable for them.

Once carers feel comfortable and have attended a few Linking Together outings, they are encouraged to develop their own social networking groups with support and assistance from Carers WA.

If you currently attend a Linking Together group and wish to provide feedback click here to complete an online feedback form. Your feedback will assist in the improvement of the program to ensure it meets the needs of the carers who attend.

Male Carers Groups

Male only carer events are held every fourth Saturday of the month using local venues to support social interaction and friendship for male carers. These special events encourage male carers to become more involved in the caring community and their local community.
