FROM Septem­ber 2019, the Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment will es­tab­lish a net­work of Re­gional De­liv­ery Part­ners to help un­paid car­ers ac­cess a range of local ser­vices such as needs as­sess­ments, tai­lored coun­selling and coach­ing or cri­sis sup­port.

From Oc­to­ber this year, the Carer Gate­way web­site will offer them peer sup­port, coun­selling, coach­ing, and ed­u­ca­tional re­sources.

“Get­ting help early can make a big dif­fer­ence to a carer’s life... to re­duce emo­tional or phys­i­cal strain, as­sist car­ers to stay in work or study, take breaks from car­ing re­spon­si­bil­i­ties,” Mem­ber for Parkes Mark Coul­ton said.

Bluff­ing their way through a very, very long wine list

EVER won­dered what wine goes best with Fairy Bread?

Is there a wine to match with Chiko Rolls? These ques­tions and many more will be an­swered by the self-styled som­me­liers of comedy, Damian Cal­li­nan and Paul Calleja, in “The Wine Bluffs”.

Lay­ing spu­ri­ous claim to “a rep­u­ta­tion as renowned wine con­sul­tants”, the duo, fresh from judg­ing the ‘Fruit Wine Sec­tion’ at ‘The Rock­hamp­ton Show’, will take the au­di­ence through the cel­lar door ex­pe­ri­ence with a comedic twist.

Con­tact Dubbo Re­gional The­atre for more de­tails. This is an 18-years-plus show and con­tains course lan­guage. Show starts at 7.30pm, Fri­day, March 23.
