Carer respite and employment support grants

August 31, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Free

ECCV invites you to join our upcoming Carer respite and employment support grants information session on Tuesday 31 August from 10:00AM – 11:00AM. 

Across Victoria, more than 736,000 unpaid carers give their time and effort to look after a partner, family member or friend who needs them. Through two funding opportunities, unpaid carers will receive increased access to respite and better support them to pursue work and study opportunities.

The Department of Families, Fairness and Housing  is looking for innovative and non-traditional ways to deliver respite services to ensure carers have a chance to look after their own health and wellbeing. Partnerships are strongly encouraged, and small ethno-specific/multicultural organisations are invited to apply to support carers from diverse backgrounds.

Organisations interested in these grants can attend this virtual information session with ECCV. Registration is essential.
