Carer Support

Carers Support Group

We have a Carers Support Group which meets on a monthly basis. They meet the third Wednesday of each month 1:00 pm –2:00 pm at Sunbury Community Health (Macedon Street).

The group provides carers with the opportunity to talk to others in a similar situation, to chat with health professionals and attend informative presentations from guest speakers.

Anyone who cares for a family member/friend or identifies as a carer is welcome to attend. You can also make a time to chat with us one on one.
