The Unsung Heroes is the new annual Signature event for The Carers Foundation Australia.
The Carers Foundation Australia is not government funded therefore relies on grants, donations and fundraising events to provide their vital wellbeing programs for unpaid family Carers
For one very special night on October 7th, Australia’s most prominent and successful CEOs, Business and Community Leaders will take to the stage to use the power of their voices to raise money for some of our country’s unsung heroes … unpaid Carers.
The funds raised over this time will allow us to build a safe, purpose-built space for our unpaid carers to heal, prevent mental and health crises, and restore their own well-being before they hit a breakdown point.
We call these selfless people who are Mums, Dads, brothers or sisters ‘Unsung Heroes’ as they sacrifice their own lives to care for their loved one with a medical or mental health condition, ageing issues, disability, accident, substance adddiction or terminal cancer.
Our passion is to maintain carers’ wellbeing and assist the with regular quality relief so they can cope with the unrelenting demands placed upon them. Currently we cannot keep up with the demand as we do not have adequate resources due to lack of funding.
Our goal to have purpose-built facility to accommodate, educate and rejuvenate Carers before they face health crisis breakdowns. This would be available 24/7 and the only center specifically for Carers in Australia.
