Robyn - Carers Manager

Hi from Robyn. I coodinate the Carers and Multicultural Carers support groups and run information courses, education workshops and events throughout the year.  

Often carers are so busy in their caring role that they are not aware of services and support available to them. Community Connect is here to support you. We encourage you to join our Program and also find support through other carers who are in similar circumstances. This program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.

We also partner with the Northern Beaches Council and local community services.

What We Do

Our Caring for Carers program provides support, education, information, referral and assistance to carers who reside on the Northern Beaches, empowering them to manage the demands of their caring situation and to maintain their own health and wellbeing.
