VGR3722 RACT final.indd 1 26/10/2010 3:13:43 PM Old-style fun with in-car games Families and friends of the Hobart Family Relationship Centre recently compiled a book of around 100 games and activities for parents and children to play indoors, outdoors and in the car. The idea was to create activities that required little cost and equipment to play and to provide successful ways for parents and children to interact positively and happily. Some families asked for more games to play in the car and thought it would be handy to have a book that would easily fit into the glove box. A new edition of the games book has been produced to meet this need. R ACT has supported Relationships Australia (Tasmania) by making this booklet available free of charge from our branches statewide. The games range from the usual such as noughts and crosses and variations on car cricket, to quite unusual ones such as ‘big fat juicy grub’ and ‘OB Language’. We can’t explain in a few words – you’ll just have to get one of the booklets! These games make a cheerful and amusing break from DVDs and personal music on long trips in the car, and offer fun and positive interactions for the whole family. If you would like your own booklet please call in to your local RACT branch or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a copy. December 2010 / January 2011 23 Life on the move Carers Tasmania – supporting family carers Carers Tasmania is a membership-based, non-profit, registered charity, dedicated to supporting the 69,500 unpaid family carers living in Tasmania. Who are carers? They are family members, neighbours and friends who care and support people who are living w ith a disability, have a mental illness, dementia, a chronic illness or are aged frail. Young people also care for loved ones – there are young carers between the ages of seven and 24 who carry out this important role. A recent research report by economist Dr Bruce Felmingham confirmed that family carers make a profound contribution to the Tasmanian economy. Dr Felmingham calculated that replacement of informal care with formal care delivered by paid support workers would incur a cost to the Tasmanian budget of over $1.2 billion per year. But unsupported caring can place the health and wellbeing of Tasmanian carers at risk, due to the physical, emotional and financial demands of providing care. To support families in Tasmania, Carers Tasmania receives funding from both the state and federal gover nments to deliver a timely, flexible holistic suite of services including emotional support, education and training, a carer advisory service and statewide carer support groups. Carers Tasmania has three locations throughout the state in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie and staff travel widely from Queenstown to Circular Head, Huonville to Sorell, St Helens to Deloraine supporting car ing families. If you are caring for someone and would like to talk to one of the Carers Tasmania team please contact the association on freecall 1800 242 636.
