Wellways is one of Australia’s largest and most respected mental health, wellbeing and carer service providers, with over 40 years experience. Founded by families advocating to improve the services, information and support available to people with mental health issues and their carers, and making sure lived experience is at the heart of all they do remains key.
The teams consist of wellbeing workers, clinical consultants, support workers, peer workers and counsellors that are dedicated to ensuring all the people we serve have opportunities to fully participate in the community.
Wellways helps to create an environment that focuses on hope rather than illness. Our activities for Nurture Festival will include Instax photos with Dazzle the Zebra (blow up), Lock eye – play Jenga while keeping eye contact, Finish that Song – music stops and you need to sing the lyrics. We will also have self care packs, stickers and Spin & Win – coffee shop vouchers, movie tickets. Now that sounds like a fun time for everyone!
Carer Gateway is an Australian Government program providing free services and support for carers.
If you care for a family member or friend with disability, a medical condition, mental illness, or who is frail due to age, then Carer Gateway can help you. The Australian Government works with a range of health and carer organisations across Australia, known as Carer Gateway service providers, to deliver services to carers no matter where they live in Australia.
Carer Gateway provides many services to support carers in their caring role.
