Carers WA aims to enhance and promote carers health and wellbeing by focusing on their emotional and social support needs. We can assist in:
- Helping carers connect, learn about services and take a break from the caring role through a range of regular in-person and online support groups in metro and regional locations.
- Providing advice, information and resources to link carers to relevant services.
- Facilitating informative workshops and courses to assist carers to return to the workforce and increase their health and wellbeing.
- Advocating for improved services and supports for carers by addressing carer issues at a state and federal level and providing training for carers to participate in government committees and to use their lived experience to represent the voice of carers in the community.
- Offering presentations to help raise awareness within the community about the role of carers and the services available to support them and participating in community conferences, expos and events.
- Providing support to young carers through community education, one-on-one needs assessment, peer support toolkits and young carer events and activities through our dedicated Young Carer team.
- Supporting carers through the provision of a range of supports and services, including those available through Carer Gateway.
Our services include the provision of specialist information and advice, resources, carer support through counselling, education/training, social support and carer advocacy and representation.
