Sharing the carer journey.


Carer Support Service has unfortunately had to suspend face to face support groups due to COVID-19 restrictions. We are looking forward to resuming our group meetings as soon as it is safe and practicable to do so. We know carers value connecting with each other.  For this reason, we are currently running our support groups by Zoom video conference, so carers can keep in touch

As from April 6, the Commonwealth Government's Carer Gateway is now operational, with The Benevolent Society being  provider for Carer Gateway in our region - Central, Eastern and Northern Sydney areas. We encourage all carers to contact the Carer Gateway on 1800 422 737 for an assessment, which will occur by phone and take about one hour.   Click on the title above for more

The Ruby Ball fundraiser on June 21 was a fabulous success!  Congratulations to our wonderful Ambassador Cheryl Koenig OAM who was the driving force behind this event, and whose 5th book In My Blood was launched on the night by Senator Kristina Keneally.  Cheryl worked tirelessly to gather an amazing team of support and generously donated the proceeds from the book launch to Carer Support Service

See you in 2019!
