Carer Support Groups: A workshop for facilitators

Carer support groups play an invaluable role for carers in the community. They provide carers with a space for social networking and an opportunity to share information about their caring role.

The success of a support group often pivots around the skills of the facilitator. Good facilitation of group meetings is essential for the sustainability of the group.

Carer Support Groups: A workshop for facilitators is a free interactive workshop covering a broad range of topics and issues that relate to the role of a carer support group facilitator.

Topics include:

  • An introduction to group processes and group work
  • Identifying and responding to issues specific to carers and the group
  • How to develop and maintain ethical facilitation
  • An introduction to Carers NSW resources for carer support groups

This training is open to:

  • Service providers and carers who currently facilitate a carer support group
  • Service providers and carers who are interested in facilitating their own group
