Kitchen Tables (from 1st Sept 2017 to Aug 31st 2018)
A Kitchen Table is where a group of family/whānau/carers get together to explore a common interest ie. a community project, preparing for system transformation, developing a local carer network, developing a particular skill, etc. For example, in 2016 – 2017 three different groups looked at ‘alternative ways of getting a break’ in three different local communities in New Zealand.
Care Matters can return up to 3 times to support family/whānau/carers in 5 locations for a specific purpose. These groups are supported by one of our Facilitators and locations are determined by local need. We expect these groups are most likely to come out of workshops, however if you have a committed group of 6 – 10 people who want more concentrated support/training please email Rebecca Walton on firstname.lastname@example.org and include your contact details.
Or contact us on 0508 236 236 if you want more information on tailored workshops or Kitchen Table groups.
