Talking about your challenges as a Staff Carer can ease the pressure and connect you with resources designed specifically for Staff Carers.
There are various supports available to Staff Carers in our District:
Staff Carer Support Service
The Sydney Local Health District Staff Carer Support Service was launched in 2019 to support District staff with carer responsibilities. Staff Carers can use this confidential support service to discuss their experience of caring and connect to resources and services tailored to their needs. To find out more about this service or to make a booking, please contact the District Carers’ Program Manager, Kim Brauer on 9767 5876 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Employee Assistance Program
The District’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a free, confidential counselling service available to all District staff. An EAP counsellor can help with work and personal difficulties, including the emotional challenges of caring. For more information, go to the District Employee Assistance Program intranet site.
