Change Futures partners with Suncare Community Services Inc to deliver counselling to carers from north of the Brisbane River to Caboolture and Bribie Island. These clients care for family members with a chronic illness or disability and the carers themselves range in age from eight years old to more than 90 years old. Given the constraints that many carers face in terms of attending services and the financial challenges of being a carer, Change Futures provides accessible services in home, via telephone or skype or in offices at a range of locations.
Most services are to individual children and adults, but Change Futures also delivers separate workshops for young female and young male carers. These workshops promote resilience and self esteem and offer social connection and peer support to these children. These workshops are offered onsite at Change Futures as we have a pool and group space.
