Albany embraces the Compassionate Communities approach

In October we partnered with the Australian Centre for Social Innovation to deliver 2 day Weavers Local Connector Training at the Albany Community Hospice.  This training was the first step in implementing a Weavers Program at the Hospice to support the carers of patients who come into its care.  Carers will be matched to a “Weaver” – an experienced former carer – to provide peer to peer support and walk alongside them on their caring journey.  The program will be officially launched in January 2019.
