Weavers support family and informal carers by connecting them with a volunteer ‘Weaver’, they are experienced and trained former carers that can walk alongside them on the caring journey.
Weavers help carers:
- Navigate and negotiate the service maze
- Stay connected and involve others
- Work through emotional challenges
- Sustain things for themselves
It has been designed by carers for carers in the city of Adelaide (South Australia) and the process has been facilitated by The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI).
The program has been open-sourced, all the resources to run and implement Weavers are available here: weavers.tacsi.org.au
