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. 

Pathways for Carers Social Connect Group

Come and meet other carers, spend time outdoors with a gentle stroll followed by a complimentary morning tea at Caulfield South Community House as well as a guest speaker.

This activity is free and limited to unpaid carers in Glen Eira or cares for someone in Glen Eira.

To celebrate National Carers Week, in October we held a special art activity, Painting with Cheri. We spent time outdoors with a gentle stroll followed by a complimentary morning tea and then explored your creative talents.

Due to popular demand, Cheri Ceberano will be with us for both our November and December dates. Cheri will bring out your inner creativity and teach painting on cards. Paint for a loved one or give it to someone in need.

When: Second Friday of the month (during school terms),  9 December
Time: 10.20am for a 10.30am start
Where: Caulfield South Community House, 450-452 Kooyong Road, Caulfield South (Wheelchair accessible. On street parking)
Cost: Free
Registration: No bookings required, registration with Caulfield South Community House on the day.
