About the event

Who This workshop is suitable for anyone who is a carer. This includes parents, children, partners, other relatives, and friends.

Why

No matter who you are, taking on a caring role is a significant life event that brings both incredible tangible rewards and some challenges. While each caring situation is unique, many carers share similar experiences. One common theme is that while caring for others we often forget to care for ourselves.

What to expect

The workshop is interactive, inspiring and a whole lot of fun. It promises to provide a safe, inclusive, and supportive space to explore and re-gain identity and begin the process of taking control of the future, within the context of being a valued carer.

We will be adapting the Tree of Life model (https://dulwichcentre.com.au/) to explore various elements of our lives. The process provides the space to take stock of our lives today, find moments of gratitude and joy and be aspirational about the future.
