Social Groups for Carers and Others

Events and groups you can attend with the person you care for

Sharing stories, knowledge and experience with other carers can remind you that you’re not alone. You can do this with people in your area by finding an event for you.

Carers ACT runs many special interest groups for carers and the people they care for.  Some groups and activities are for everyone, and some are for people in certain aged groups or demographics.  Please read out event descriptions to see which activities are best for you.

Social groups for My Aged Care
Carers ACT provides social connection programs and groups for anyone with a My Aged Care social connection code.  Our Groups Team organise a range of activities to cater for different interests and cultural groups.

While our focus is always on carers and their wellbeing, we understand that most people will at some point on their life provide unpaid care to a family or friend. Social groups are one way we can help to build resilient, connected communities and foster support networks.

Our social groups are accessible to anyone with a social support code through My Aged Care (over 65’s or over 55s for First Nations people).
