PersonalCarers to Enable Community Participation

Caring for someone can be a rewarding experience however it can also be very demanding and strenuous.

Additionally, when you’re caring for someone the journey can feel like a battle with the system. It’s often difficult to find out what services you’re entitled to and even more, how you can get those services. It is often common for people to feel reserved and reluctant to go out and shop for services because they fear to lose their current supports.

Community Participation

Social isolation affects your health and wellbeing. Your Side coordinates a range of activities and day trips in the community to extend your social connections, keep you healthy and active and simply to enjoy life. Our activities are designed around your interests with other like-minded people.

Activities may include:

  • movies and lunches
  • sporting events
  • shopping trips
  • picnics, tenpin bowling, and karaoke nights
  • day trips to suburbs beyond Sydney
  • annual events like the Sydney Royal Easter Show or the Vivid Festival
  • theatres, art galleries, and museums
  • historical sites and buildings
  • group activities to support your use of technology to communicate with family interstate or overseas
  • dinner at the RSL club
  • mini golf
  • power prize bingo and lunch
  • beach day and surfing lessons

We love to plan activities for you! Getting out and about will help you learn new skills such as how to confidently use public transport, see new sights, make new friends and most of all do the things you love. You can trust us to provide respectful and professional care throughout your experience with us.
