Our Carer Services
Coaching is an individualised, short-term support and can be accessed via phone, online, or face-to-face at one of our offices. Coaches are skilled staff who can support carers to:
- Identify their own needs and goals
- Explore a balance between their needs and the responsibilities of their caring role
- Develop strategies to support their caring role
- Explore access to the NDIS or a Disability Support Pension
Counselling is a safe and confidential collaboration between qualified counsellors and carers to promote mental health and wellbeing, enhance self-understanding, and resolve identified concerns.
Skylight offers short-term counselling services for carers who are experiencing difficulties with anxiety, stress, depression, grief and loss as a result of their caring role.
Peer groups provide carers with an opportunity to connect, share and learn from each other.
These groups can assist carers to:
- Meet other carers in similar circumstances
- Share experiences and practical insights
- Learn from one another and develop networks of support
- Build knowledge and understanding
- Explore strategies for increasing resilience
Skylight facilitates various peer groups and can help you to connect with the right group in your local area.
Skylight provides Activity Groups to help you socialise, develop new friendships and explore a range of activities in your local community.
