City of Melbourne recognises the important and invaluable role carers play in the community. To support this vital work, we run regular Carer Support Groups, providing support, respite and an opportunity to connect and share experiences with other local carers. The direction of the group is guided by the participants, so please get in contact to discuss your needs. Our groups are free, flexible, open and friendly and we meet regularly – though your time and attendance is always optional, to support your busy lives.
