Kyabram Community and Learning Centre (KCLC), in collaboration with Kyabram District Health Services (KDHS), is delighted to announce Carers Voice Carers Choice. An initiative to enhance the assistance and resources of caregivers within our community. With funding from Carers Victoria, as part of the Connecting Carers in their Community Grant Program!
“Our goal is to make the most of this funding by organizing activities and workshops that resonate with our current caregiver connections and at the same time, draw in new caregivers within our community. However, our primary emphasis will be on employing a co-design approach to create activities based on the input and needs expressed by caregivers in our community, ensuring that the voice of every caregiver is acknowledged and considered,” said Claire Perrella, of KCLC.
“Carers are often overlooked despite the vital support they offer to family and friends. In line with the Victorian Carer Strategy, this program will provide caregivers with opportunities to form peer-support networks and collaborate with caregivers to create a program tailored to their unique needs.”
To kick off Carers Voice Carers Choice, KCLC plans to host a lunch on the paddle steamer in Echuca. This event is designed to bring caregivers together for a leisurely lunch and a cruise along the majestic Murray River and they are encouraging caregivers to come along.
For more information or if you are a carer with suggestions for activities or workshops that would benefit you in your caregiving role and would like to be involved, please contact Claire Perrella at KCLC on 5852 0000 or email@example.com or Candy Fanning at KDHS on 0434 363 167 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
