Did you know that 1 in 8 Victorians is in a caring role and that caring can impact all aspects of a carer's life: family, social, employment, financial, health and wellbeing?
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.
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.
