Jean Tops, President of the Gippsland Carers Group was the guest speaker at a Carers Australia event held in Victory Park, Traralgon today.  Almost one hundred people including Carers, their families, politicians and cyclists attended the event.  Ms Tops spoke of her life as a carer and the need for carers in rural and remote areas to be given services and support.

"Carers in regional Australia experience real and profound isolation as well as added costs in accessing necessary services such as transport and respite care for their loved one," said Ms Tops.
