The together program provides opportunities for existing and new support groups (for carers of people with disability in New South Wales) to be linked in with each other and an organisation to receive some assistance.
The together: Support groups for carers of people with a disability in NSW program came about through an unmet need for a funded, coordinated, state-wide network of support groups for carers of people living with disability.
The together program is centrally managed by Carers NSW and funded by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care.
The together program provides:
- Structured support to support groups for carers of people with disability, including training, education and support for the facilitator.
- Funding to assist with some group costs that can include venue hire, administration, resources and guest speakers.
- Central coordination of support groups for carers of people with disability.
- Capacity building for organisations working with support groups for carers of people with disability.
The together program seeks to address the needs of support groups for carers of people with disability that are unmet by other programs funded by other sources in New South Wales.
