About the Program

The Northern Carers Network has committed to the implementation and rollout of a program called the Community Connections Program (CCP), funded through the Department of Human Resources.

The CCP has been designed to support people living within the community, whose independence and quality of life is at risk due to disconnection from necessary supports and may be faced with heightened vulnerability due to social isolation
