Northern Carers Network (NCN) acknowledges the valuable role Carers play in our community. Carers often provide support for loved ones 24/7, in an unpaid capacity and usually with little or no training. At NCN, we understand that Carers sometimes need a helping hand to carry out their demanding role and we provide that support through respite, counselling, information, advocacy and recreational activities.
By assisting Carers to take a break from their responsibilities, they have the opportunity to play a greater role in family and community activities. NCN can assist with early prevenative supports aimed at overcoming feelings of isolation and anxiety experienced by many Carers.
We are a self-managed support organisation funded through State and Federal Government to provide assistance for Carers living in the Town of Gawler, City of Playford, City of Port Adelaide Enfield, City of Salisbury and the City of Tea Tree Gully.

Northern Carers Network offers access to a range of Support Groups for Carers. Some are specialised and others are more general. Some groups meet monthly and some fortnightly. Some share coffee and a chat and others hear from guest speakers or go out and about. What they all have in common is they provide an opportunity for Carers to connect with people in similar circumstances to their own.
