An important aspect of our disability services is our work supporting the families and carers of people with disability. If you provide unpaid care and support to a family member with disability we can offer you a range of services.
- Support groups – We run monthly support groups for unpaid carers in Karratha, Hedland and Newman. These groups provide you with a safe environment to share your experiences, as well as an opportunity to meet new people and establish a supportive network.
- Short breaks – Last year we received funding to run a series of pampering and relaxation days for carers. They were a huge success and we hope to be able to offer a similar program in the future.
- Respite – It is essential for family members and carers to have regular breaks from their caring duties. This kind of respite also offers a meaningful opportunity for people with disability to develop skills and friendships and enjoy new experiences away from the usual care routine. Residential respite involves short-term stays away from home in our respite houses in Karratha and Hedland that are in the photos below.
