Carer Friendly Places

Carer Friendly Places

The Carer Friendly program enables Carers Victoria to further extend our reach and support to carers around Victoria by providing opportunities for carers to connect and live healthier and more active lives in their local community.


Embedding connections in the community

Partnering with Neighbourhood Houses Victoria, Municipal Association Victoria and local councils, Carers Victoria is extending support to carers by providing opportunities to connect and engage in carer friendly communities in local, easily accessible spaces.

Neighbourhood houses and local councils undertake specific training to develop greater awareness of the varied needs of carers, how they can better support carers, offer specific carer activities and provide pathways to carer supports and programs. On completion they become designated Carer Friendly places, easily identifiable by the Carer Friendly logo.

In Carer Friendly places carers can:  

  • Meet in welcoming and warm spaces;
  • Find information about supports and services that exist for carers;
  • Connect with other people in their local community;
  • Participate in local programs and activities;
  • Enjoy spaces for support group meetings;
  • Connect to programs and pathways specifically for carers.


Local Councils

Carer Friendly online training is now available to all local councils. If you are a local council please email to register your interest.


Neighbourhood Houses

The Carer Friendly program is available to neighbourhood houses and community learning centres across the state. New Carer Friendly houses are joining regularly.

To view the current list of Carer Friendly Neighbourhood Houses search below, or look out for the Carer Friendly logo at your local neighbourhood house or community centre.
