The genU Carers High Tea will see 100 deserving carers from the Geelong region take a well-earned break from their responsibilities to celebrate National Carers Week at a special event just for them.
Sponsored by Geelong Connected Communities with support from volunteers from GMHBA, the Carers High Tea is held annually to acknowledge the extraordinary work that unpaid carers do throughout the year as they support their families, friends and those in need of full time care.
Across Australia 2.7 million unpaid carers provide the bulk of care for people who live with disability or illness and the ageing. The age of carers can range from children as young as 10 years old, through to elderly parents looking after an adult child with disability. These extraordinary people often live a life of isolation due to the demands on their times. This one afternoon of pampering is a small way of giving back to the people who give so much to the broader community every day and we are delighted to be able to support this event.
Further details will be available here in coming weeks
