The Pathways for Carers program takes carers on an accessible walk through a local walking trail and ends at a local cafe. Participants only require a reasonable level of fitness to complete the gentle walk led by an experienced lead carer. Carers can enjoy a complimentary coffee and cake at a local café as they listen to a guest speaker provide information on a nominated topic.
