Come along, meet other carers and enjoy fun, sociable outings and activities plus opportunities to share information and network.
IOE runs a number of carer support groups which operate throughout the local eastern and adjoining municipalities. It doesn’t matter where you live you can choose which of the advertised activities you want to attend.
As well as low cost short social outings Carer Support Groups run a program of information based activities and workshops to support you in your carer role. If you care for someone with a disability you are welcome.
Parent Social Support
We have separate groups for mums (plus other female carers) and dads (plus other male carers). Come along and enjoy a variety of sociable day or evening outings each month plus an annual weekend away. We do the organising, you do the enjoying and the relaxing.
As well as taking part in some great activities in the company of others, the groups provide a chance to network and share experiences too. So, come along, have a chat, have a laugh, meet new people and have a well deserved break.
An increasing number of grandparents are taking on the care of people with disabilities. Their circumstances come with a set of particular challenges that are often overlooked. That is why we started our Grandparent Carer Group. FREE get-togethers to recognise and celebrate the unique role of full-time grandparent carers in our community. IOE values the contribution of grandparents who support family members with the care of their children, however this program is for grandparents who are the full-time carer/guardian of their grandchild(ren) only.
