The together program

Provides opportunities for existing and new support groups to be linked in with each other and an organisation to receive assistance. The together program seeks to address the needs of support groups for carers of people with a disability that are unmet by other programs funded by other sources in New South Wales.

A network of support groups across New South Wales

The together: Support groups for carers of people with a disability in NSW program came about through an identified unmet need for a funded, coordinated, state-wide network of support groups for carers of people living with a 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 seeks to address the needs of support groups for carers of people with a disability that are unmet by other programs funded by other sources in New South Wales.

The together program aims to provide:

  • Structured support to support groups for carers of people with a 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 a disability.
  • Capacity building for organisations working with support groups for carers of people with a disability
