Carers Victoria

Carers Victoria is the statewide voice for family carers representing and providing support to carers in Victoria.

Project Location: Victoria

Many people caring for family members who are older with care needs, have a disability, a chronic illness or a mental health condition are overwhelmed with the demands of caring, including the need to access information online.

The 'Digital Literacy in the Modern Caring World' project will support family carers to increase digital skills and confidence through using the Be Connected Topic Library and additional online resources. Carers Victoria will run 20 education workshops and liaise with local partners, peer support groups and community service providers to deliver the program and promote involvement in Be Connected.
