We care for Carers!

And Neighbourhood Houses Victoria cares for Carers! Led by the inspirational Kristine Rawlinson, Neighbourhood Houses Victoria is blazing a trail to provide a voice and necessary support to Carers in Victoria. Check out the NHVic website to get involved with their latest offerings!

Prahran Place is a not-for-profit organisation that operates as a Neighbourhood House. To foster our aim to connect people to create a stronger, resilient and healthier community, we partner with the NHVic team to support Carers in our community. This includes activities for carers that give them opportunities to meet others, get out and about, learn new skills or keep fit. Prahran Place is a Carer Friendly Place open to you to participate in courses, use our resources to access information and services and just come and relax in our social spaces.

Calling all Carers!

Offering all carers of a person with a disability, mental illness or older person a free group to connect and learn about news, services and supports available.

Do you provide unpaid care?

Are you someone who provides unpaid care and support to family members and/or friends with a disability, mental illness, chronic health issue or an older person with care needs? You may be eligible for our Carers Program

If you are an unpaid carer (not employed as a carer / support worker role), sign up to the Prahan Place Carer’s program to receive free access to community programs. Caring can be a demanding service and often restricts the lives of carers and their families by creating financial hardship, social isolation, decreased emotional wellbeing and missed opportunities. The goal of this program is to provide support and education to unpaid carers to overcome these barriers. Talk to us to learn more about how Carers Victoria, Neighbourhood Houses Victoria and Prahan Place can help you access the following services:

  • FREE access to Prahan Place programs
  • Financial Support
  • Counselling Services
  • Peer Support
  • Emergency Respite Support
  • Employment Assistance

Talk to us to learn more about our programs and how we can help you connect to the services and opportunities you need.
