We work to ensure that caring is a shared responsibility of family, community and government. We want to support carers better; we want to make carers' lives better.
Carers Victoria's values and principles provide a touchstone against which individual, team and organisational behaviour can be aligned:
Carers Victoria is recognised and funded as the leading body for carers and caring families in Victoria.
We work collaboratively with Carers Australia and the other State and Territory -based Carer Associations to represent and advocate, and provide carer services on behalf of carers throughout Australia.
Our core work includes:
Carers, the people they care for and their families are at the centre of everything we do; we support carers self-directing their services.
Our work is undertaken in close collaboration with carers, our member associations and strategic partners; working towards a common goal.
We act with integrity, ensuring accountable and ethical organisational practice.
As a national network our work encourages personal growth and empowerment of carers, the people they care for and their families.
We celebrate diversity, recognising that carers come from all walks of life and have different needs.
We strive for innovation, and continuous improvement.
We achieve our mission through awareness raising, advocacy and the delivery of carer services.
We utilise and integrate digital technologies.
Carers Victoria provides a range of services and supports to carers. Get to know some of our staff working in different functions across our organisation including advisory and access, education, counselling and carer support.
