Where Carers and their families come first

Sometimes sharing your experiences as a Carer can be easier without the added stress of gender bias.

Back Room Boys

General Support for male Carers. This group meets at NCN on the first Monday of the month between 10am and 12pm.

Working Men’s Carers Group

The group is aimed at supporting working carers providing opportunities to extend mateship with other men in a similar situation. Gatherings are held on the last Friday of the month at various venues.  Generally the gathering is facilitated over dinner and drinks. Please contact NCN for further information.

support groups


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.
