As a working carer this is a model of support that may be helpful to you as the person for whom you care might be able to be supported by others as well as by yourself.
Imagine being embedded in a local community where people knew you, wanted to help you and made you feel connected, supported and included.
Well that is the silent grassroots revolution that is happening right now.
A Network consists of about 10 houses or flats in the same neighbourhood, within walking distance of each other.
The group's goal will be to facilitate the development of 50 Supported Living Networks around Australia by the end of 2010, and many more by the end of 2011.
