Camcare Inc - A local community support agency


We are a community organisation of professionals and volunteers working together to help people in Boroondara when times are tough.

If life is overwhelming, Camcare is there. We provide wellbeing and support services, information and practical assistance. That might be food relief in a crisis, connecting to other services, or professional counselling for new parents, unsettled teenagers or vulnerable families. We go out to see people who need support in their homes.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Camcare continues to operate services for those who need them. In some cases we have modified service delivery and are providing services over the phone or via video conferencing. Essential services, including Emergency Relief, are available in person from our Camberwell Office from Monday-Friday. This provides vital support to those on low incomes who are already known to us. We also anticipate that demand may grow due to the adverse economic impact of the pandemic. Already many people in the community are being stood down and people relying on casual work are facing big reductions in their incomes as small businesses are suspended. You may know someone who has been impacted in this way.

Camcare relies on an annual community food drive organized by a coalition of churches in Boroondara. Our stocks of non-perishable food are running very low as, understandably, the Food Drive has been postponed from April to October 2020. Fresh food supplies from our usual suppliers, Second Bite and Oz Harvest, are also dwindling.

In order to continue to provide crisis support to those who need it, we need your help now.

We are appealing to you to make a donation to help us maintain our Emergency Relief Service. A donation of $100.00 will supply a family with essential food items and $50.00 will support a single person for one week. You can donate on line by visiting our website or alternatively you can post a cheque to 51 St Johns Avenue, Camberwell VIC 3124. All financial donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible.

Camcare deeply appreciates the generous partnerships and donations that enable us to provide assistances to those doing it tough in our community.

We are confident we will all get through it by pulling together as a community.
