Carer Gateway website to support unpaid carers in Parkes Electorate
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.
