We are a self-help group of carers and people with special needs. Some of us care for our children (both young children and adults) and some of us care for spouses or other family members, or we may have a disability or chronic illness ourselves. It is a volunteer led group and has been operating for over 35 years. We meet regularly for morning coffee get togethers, conduct NDIS Roundtables, have visiting speakers and workshops, celebrate special occasions eg Carers Week, IDPWD etc and support initiatives that improve access and inclusion in our community.
