Carers & Parents Support Group Inc. (CPSG) provides information, advocacy, referral and support to carers, parents & families of adults (18+ years) with an Intellectual Disability and/or Dual Disability living within the Ovens Murray area.

Monthly general carers meetings are held First Monday of Month (10 a.m. - 12 p.m.) at our Office in the Gliding Club of Victoria Building, 37 Samaria Rd, Benalla. Carers are asked to bring a plate to share for lunch. Speakers of interest maybe invited to share information at these meetings.

CPSG coordinate carer workshops partnering with other like minded organisations i.e. CarersVic, EACH, Benalla Carers Group on topics i.e. Legal, Guardianship, Relationship issues.

Each year CPSG plan other social activities to promote carer to carer support i.e. pamper day, bus trips to Melbourne, Bright & Echuca for lunch & cruise on Emmylou.

We are part of a network of Carer Support Groups across Victoria linking with carers in Numurkah, Wangaratta & Mansfield on a regular basis.
