Where Carers and their families come first

Carers in Diversity Program

NCN's program for CALD Carer's offer: family activities, support groups, overnight retreats, respite and individual support to Carers of all ages.

Community driven programs increase Carers' access to services and information strengthening families.

Carers in Diversity

Carers are people in the community who look after a family member or friend with a disability, mental illness, chronic illness or are frail aged.

The individual needs of Carers from a diversity of cultural communities are culturally and sensitively responded to.

Carer support and respite is beneficial to the health and wellbeing of Carers strengthening their family and community.

Family outings

The program aims to acknowledge the vital role that Carers play within our community. The program will enrich the lives of all generations involved; strengthening the whole family with opportunities to reduce the impact that caring can have on family relationships.

Family outings provide support to families who are often isolated from other services and facilities.

support groups


Northern Carers Network offers access to a range of Support Groups for Carers. Some are specialised and others are more general. Some groups meet monthly and some fortnightly. Some share coffee and a chat and others hear from guest speakers or go out and about. What they all have in common is they provide an opportunity for Carers to connect with people in similar circumstances to their own.
