Further funding to support carer wellbeing

Extended Families is pleased to share we were successful in receiving further funding in support of ‘Rebalance’, our Carer Wellbeing and Respite program.  The funding from the Victorian Governments’ Support for Carers will enable the program to operate from 2022-2026 to support carers of young people with specialised needs to feel valued and achieve outcomes that are important to them. 

Rebalance acknowledges the importance of the unpaid and invisible work of carers by removing barriers that prevent them from meeting employment, study, health, leisure and wellbeing needs, and importantly, supporting them to feel valued. Since beginning in 2021, Rebalance has provided a range of supports to carers, such as respite, household support (cleaning or gardening), access to health and wellbeing facilities (gyms and pools), community centre classes and programs, and financial support to meet work or education needs. 

Rebalance has proved to be much needed among the carer community and currently the program is at capacity with a waiting list.  

For more information, visit our Rebalance website page.

Living with a disability can be difficult. We support people aged 0-30 and their families in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula to build friendships and connect with their community.
