Gippsland Carers Association has moved Carers Place to 62 George Street Morwell

 Change is happening to our Carers Place and our support services. We have moved to 62 George Street Morwell from March 2019.

This change is needed due to a number of factors.

1. That the Coalition cannot keep their  funding promise because they did not win government in Victoria. 

2. The rent at previous location too expensive

3. We can not afford to pay staff at the present time.

4. Labor Government refuses to hear the cries of Carers for funded regional support Networks.

5. We are currently open to public on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9.30am to 3.00pm only

We are working hard to find Carer Leaders for Support Groups, so if you know someone that will help with this important work, we have some interesting speakers offering their services to inform Carers of services in Gippsland. We have now enough room at our new Carers Place to hold meetings in our venue.

Please contact us at Carers Place on 0351333343. DO leave a message if we cannot answer you directly.
