It was great to meet so many carers at our sold-out Member Family Day event at the Melbourne Zoo this month. Check out the wrap-up and some snaps from the day below.
If you missed out on a ticket to our Member Family Day and are keen to re-connect in person, tickets are now available for our 2022 Mingle program. Scroll down to find your closest event and register your place today to avoid missing out.
Applications for our Young Carer Scholarship Program 2022 are now open. If you’re a young carer currently attending secondary school in Victoria, or know someone who is, we encourage you to find out more below. Applications close Friday 15 April.
To celebrate our 30th anniversary year, we are collecting 30 carer stories to celebrate the diverse experiences of Victorian carers. This month, we share Laura’s story. Laura is a mother and carer to Christian, who was diagnosed with autism as a young child. Now he is 18 years old, Laura is learning to step outside her comfort zone as a carer to encourage Christian’s independence as he transitions to adulthood.
The Carers Victoria Team
Carers Victoria is turning 30 this year, and to celebrate we’re launching an exciting new season of Mingles for carers.
Join us at Mingle 2022 for a live performance from Elvis tribute artist Damian Mullin, delicious morning tea and lunch. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about carer services in your local area, reconnect with other carers and take a break to prioritise your wellbeing.
Mingles are free events for carers.
