Support for carers

Our District is committed to supporting carers.

CHAT – Carers Health and Thoughts

Carers Health and Thoughts (CHAT) is an online registry of carers who live in Sydney Local Health District. It is managed by the Carers Program and aims to improve communication about relevant carer initiatives, resources and experiences.

Our monthly CHAT updates include:

  • local activities for carers, initiatives and resources relating to the role of carers
  • Information and tips on key issues that impact carers
  • Opportunities to share personal experiences and provide feedback in relation to your role as a carer in our Local Health District.
