Carers NT facilitate weekly In-Person Peer Support Groups through the Carer Gateway which give carers the opportunity to discuss their caring role and experiences. It allows them to have some time out from their caring role while accessing the group and listening to other carers stories. It gives carers the opportunity to connect with a supportive community, and who knows you might make a new friend or two.
Our meetings take place in a safe, caring and confidential way, whether the meetings are face-to-face, or online, known as eGrow groups. Our members meet weekly and follow the Group Method. The meetings run for about two hours and the groups vary in size from 3-10 members. We are a peer-to-peer led support group, where newer members are supported and mentored by experienced members who have worked through the Grow Program and have taken on a leadership role within the group.
