Our Impact 

The Carers Foundation Australia provides family Carers with our unique wellbeing programs to support their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Thousands of carers have attended our programs and found that they are better able to cope with their role when they return home.

Burnout is very real and the health effects are debilitating.

The purpose of these programs are to prevent health crisis breakdown from the impact of caring.

Other significant outcomes are the new meaningful connections established and improved mental health resilience. Carers are more engaged and connected, empowered, have increased capacity and feel valued.

Our unique programs assist to avert health crisis breakdowns in carers resulting from compassion fatigue 
The reality is that there are young children caring for their sick or disabled parent or siblings, of which the general public are totally unaware.
Even elderly Carers over 85 years old still care for their disabled or medically unwell children or partner, often experiencing injuries, and or abuse.
