How to Thrive - Expression of Interest

Specialist topics

Are you ready to thrive?

Carer KaFÉ is thrilled to launch “HOW TO THRIVE” - an evidence-based yet practical program dedicated to supporting the health and wellbeing of carers…

This initiative has been a collaboration between Carer KaFÉ and ThriveAbility to prioritise the needs of our community heroes - carers - as they care for vulnerable children & young people.

HOW TO THRIVE” is underpinned by the BEACON framework which brings together the latest science on wellbeing and combines it with qualified social workers / psychologist who have the experience supporting others just like you.

Round 1 launched on Sunday 10th May at RACV Country Club & Resort Healesville.  We had a great uptake and were pleased that carers were able to connect with other carers and acknowledge their need for support, as indicated in some of the quotes below:

“I travelled 4 hours to get here yesterday and was able to stay over last night.  It’s been so lovely and this morning I feel I’m really in the right headspace.  Thank you Carer KaFÉ for all you have done this past year… I have appreciated the online sessions but it is so good to be amongst other carers in person as it has been so isolating of late” Accredited Foster Carer 

“I’m here because I don’t want to lose the passion I have for what I do.” Accredited Foster Carer 

“I’m here because I need to refill my tank for the next child.  I need permission to look after myself and get myself right before I put my hand up for another baby.” Accredited Foster Carer 

“I just want to do me!” Permanent Carer 

Expressions of Interest for Rounds 2 & 3 are still open with Round 2 commencing in June/July 2022 and Round 3 in August / September 2022. Exact dates will be released shortly.  Register your expression of interest today.  Please note that registering is not a confirmation of your attendance in this program.  Carer KaFÉ will advise you of the outcome.
