The much anticipated together Program Facilitator Forum was held on Thursday 27 November, 2014, at Rydges Central Hotel, Surry Hills. Approximately 70 participants, speakers and Carers NSW staff gathered for a full day program, which aimed to bring together Carer Support Group facilitators from around New South Wales. Participants travelled from as far away as Broken Hill, Deniliquin and Dubbo, as well as greater Sydney and surrounding areas. Many carers made arrangements for respite or alternate care for the person they care for, to enable them to travel away from home and take part in this important event.

 

Following the forum, an evaluation of the event was conducted. Of the 57 carer support group facilitators that attended, 40 completed an online evaluation form (70% completion). The results of this evaluation, and a selection of feedback comments are available to view here.
