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.

And we create a welcoming community space at Camcare for people to meet and participate in activities – a place to belong.


Funds will be used to:

  • support students from low income households with education costs. If these costs are not met students lose out on opportunities to learn and participate in a range of school activities. This compromises the educational outcomes they can achieve.
  • deliver group work with parents and children to improve relationships, build resilience and coping skills
  • support families meet essential household costs in a crisis brought about by ill health, unemployment or family breakdown
  • establish projects which provide opportunities for people to address their own needs, develop useful skills and meet others, e.g our kitchen garden for people who live in boarding houses.
  • add value to the work Camcare does by researching need in our local community, evaluating our programs and ensuring they continue to be relevant to the needs of the community we serve.

Key Areas of Expenditure are:

  • To deliver services to more people or new services to individuals and families in need
  • To provide people with one-off financial support in a crisis
  • To fund key projects for clients which improve their skills and access to resources
  • To support Camcare's service development through funding research, review and evaluation of current programs.
