Carers Week 2013 a great success!!

Our Carers Week 2013 events were extremely popular and gave a large number of Shire carers the opportunity to do something special as well as receive recognition for their important role.

In partnership with the Sutherland Shire Carers Week working group, we hosted a Dinner Cruise on Port Hacking, a lunch at Embark Restaurant, Loftus TAFE, and a morning at the African themed Putt Planet at Miranda.

Thankyou to Carers Week organiser Katie Matthias for all her work.  Our thanks also go to the representatives from the other organisations on the Carers Week working group: Parent to Parent Association, CatholicCare Dementia Carer Support Service and SESLHD NSW Health Carer Program.

In addition, our CALD carer support groups had special events for Carers Week:  A lunch at Zippos for the carers from Greek background, and a trip to Bundeena and "Positive Caring Workshop" for the carers from Chinese background.

You might have also seen displays for Carers Week in Sutherland, Engadine and Menai Libraries.

One of our local carers was featured in a Leader story for Carers Week on October 15.  This resulted in some contact from "new" carers who had not previously heard of our services.
