WELCOME TO RE-EMERGE - THE NEXT CHAPTER IS FOR YOU
Re-emerge aims to support family carers with their transitions back to paid employment. This will involve focusing on the family carers emotional, physical and mental well-being along with the practical training required.
Recruitment is open until March 31st 2023, you can register your interest here. The program runs from March 2023 - March 2024. Maximum time commitment per week is 6 hours.
Project manager Amy and project coordinator Lisa, through the Kaleidoscope and Return Ready projects have, since 2021, worked alongside over 200 family carers on their journey back to paid employment. We have learnt that alongside the necessary practical training required, family carers have also reported the need for supports with their overall well-being to ensure finding and retaining paid work is achievable.
Re-emerge will deliver tailored workshops to address the practical, emotional and physical needs of family carers transitioning back to the work place.
Practical Training: Career coaching, CV & Interview prep, IT training, job sourcing, further education support etc.
Mental Health Support: Access to mental health support groups, mindfulness, meditation, confidence building, peer interaction etc.
Physical Health Supports: Nutritional advice workshops, yoga, exercise classes etc.
