Supporting families, carers and the people they care for.
CCNB take a flexible and innovative approach to working with the carers to provide a break and help you participate in your local community. As a community inclusion organisation, CCNB works with carers for older people, people with disability, of families with children and many other community minded organisations as well.
We listen and plan with you to find out what’s important to you.
This may include:
• Arranging for the person you care for to be supported at home while you are out spending time with family, shopping or other social activities.
• Supporting the person you care for to be more connected within your local community, including meeting new people or catching up with friends, learning new skills and developing interests. Such as learning how to play a musical instrument or to use a computer, going to a sporting match or joining a local gardening group.
CCNB ensure that your support worker is a culturally appropriate ‘fit’ to your family, committed to working towards meeting the goals of the person with the disability.
A few of the programs we run are outlined below. But contact us to discuss your needs, as there are other programs that may be able to support you.
