Support Us

Over 12% of Victorians are unpaid carers. Your valued contribution will have a lasting impact at Carers Victoria and all people in our community.

More often than not carers put the needs of others before their own, and do not always consider themselves 'carers' but rather spouse, parent, sibling. Consequently, their own health and wellbeing deteriorates due to stress and physical demand. In fact, carers 'have the lowest collective wellbeing of any group' measured by the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index.

Carers Victoria aims to ensure that carers are supported in their daily lives. We do this by working directly with them and collaborating with Government, businesses and other community organisations to improve services, systems and supports. Our support extends to connecting carers to a wide range of services, including counselling, funding support, respite, education and training.

You can help support us by fundraising for us, giving a donation, sending an in memory gift or making a bequest to Carers Victoria in your Will. Your generous donation to Carers Victoria will help fund vital services required to improve the health, wellbeing, resilience and economic security of Victorian carers - possibly someone you know.

We want to support carers better; together we can make their lives better. Thank you.
