Already more than 70 Support Groups strong, the Parkinson’s NSW network is experiencing a growth spurt with more than 15 new Groups at various stages of the formal registration process.
Ashfield, Tumbarumba, and Albury Young Onset have commenced in the last year, and Maitland has just been approved. Broken Hill is coming soon.
There are also five Carers Groups in the process of formalising their status in various areas across the State.
These Carers Groups have previously been operating on an informal basis and are now completing the Parkinson’s NSW registration process.
We are also assisting another five existing Support Groups to start up Carers Groups and will be working with other Groups as the need arises.
Requests to establish Support Groups have also been received from Henty and Inverell, and Parkinson’s NSW is sizing up Blacktown and Five Dock as potential new areas for development following successful local information sessions last year.
Want to know more or enquire about starting a Support Group or Carers Group in your area? Contact Support Group Coordinator Felicity Jones.
