Our Post:

At Afford, we are committed to delivering whole-of-life supports and that’s why we make every effort to provide events and opportunities for our Carers, to give them some time to themselves, to get together with others and extend their support networks.

Taking Time For Yourself

Carers in the Central West  recently attended a Carer’s lunch at Lily’s Restaurant in Seven Hills and the families and carers from Kings Park Day Program also attended a get together in Maryong.

The events were a wonderful opportunity for carers to get together to talk about recent experiences or share ideas and thoughts. It was also a great opportunity for carers to connect with Afford staff to discuss current services and any questions they may have about the NDIS.

Learn From Others And Find Support

Get togethers such as these are important, especially leading up to special events, such as Christmas. It’s a great time to connect with Afford to find out what supports, such as Respite or vacation care, may be available over the holiday periods, as well as important information and contacts to know about for the holiday period.

Afford coordinates these Carer Events in partnership with Carers NSW. Thanks to funding provided by Carers NSW, Afford is able to provide opportunities and events for carers to take some time out for themselves and socialise with others with similar experiences.
