Pathways for Carers offers carers of people with a disability or mental health illness an opportunity to share walks together and learn about local services and supports available to carers.

Pathways for Carers runs every second Tuesday, 9.30am and third Saturday, 1pm. We meet at Thor-Ra-Nee Cafe at Burnt Bridge Shopping Centre on Maroondah Hwy, Ringwood and walk along the Mullum Mullum Creek trail before returning to the cafe for morning/afternoon tea. This program is supported by Maroondah City Council, Uniting lifeAssist, and the Chrisalis Foundation. 

Anyone who is a carer of someone with a disability or mental health illness is welcome to join us. We have a different guest walker attend each walk who talks about the services and programs their organisation offers carers and the people they care for. The walks are educational as well as offering the chance for some exercise.

The walks are suitable for all fitness levels and no bookings are required.
