What's on for carers

We host activities and events each year to recognise and support the carers in the Glen Eira community. It's a time and place for carers to relax, exercise and connect. 

We will keep you up-to-date with Council events and activities as they become available.

Celebrating our carers — share your story

Do you care for someone? We’d love to know more about your experiences. Share your story and ideas and you can also include a photo that is special to you. To participate email carersupport@gleneira.vic.gov.au by Friday 25 June. In the email please include your full name and contact number. We will be in touch to send you a consent form to let us share your information.

To recognise and acknowledge the contribution carers make to our Glen Eira community and better understand our local carers these submissions will be published and displayed during Carers Week in October.

Save the date for National Carers Week in October

We are planning several events for carers in Glen Eira during National Carers Week during 10–16 October 2021.
