To celebrate National Carers Week (10-16 October) at 10-11am on Thursday 14 October Frankston City Council, Brotherhood of St Laurence NDIS and Interchange Outer East will host an online launch of their new Frankston City Pathways for Carers program. Registrations are essential
The Pathways for Carers program is a monthly gathering of local carers to aimed at improving the health, wellbeing and supportive connections of participants.
On the 2nd Thursday of each month from 9:30am-11am, participants will meet locally for a gentle stroll in nature (or pending Covid-19 restrictions will meet online) where participants can chat, receive peer support and build friendships. This will be followed by a complimentary morning tea and a guest speaker to empower participants with information about supports and resources available to them in the community.
This program was initiated as a direct result of feedback and ideas shared by the community during consultations for Frankston City’s upcoming Disability Action Plan 2021-2025. The Disability Action Plan is a roadmap outlining how Council will work over the next four years to improve disability access and inclusion in Frankston City. The plan also recognises the important and challenging role that carers play in our community and includes actions to support the carers doing this this vital work.
