Connect Up! Online Social Connection Portal

Carers WA have teamed up with Curtin University Research team, Health Redesigned and Eduka Web Design to develop an online social connection portal called Connect Up!

In its final stages of testing, we are now inviting enthusiastic and forward thinking individuals like yourself to be the very first people to give it a go! Your feedback will then help us make this the best online social connection portal possible.

This portal will enable people with disability to;
  • engage in the community,
  • form social connections with peers,
  • and increase opportunities for physical exercise, sport, and recreation.

Greater connection will lead to improvements in both physical health, social connection, and mental wellbeing for people with disability and carers.

To be one of the first people to try out Connect Up! you will be:
  • A person with disability or a carer of a person with disability.
  • Willing to share your thoughts and feedback through questionnaires and interviews.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in getting involved with, don’t hestitate to send us an expression of interest below.
