Our team is small but incredibly determined and passionate about our cause. We have no formal fundraising strategy in place and require your skills and insights to help shape our future plans which are quite significant.

There are over 3 million Carers in Australia as young as eight years old, and they are not coping. Over 70% have severe mental health issues due to the extreme stress they endure daily.

We need to establish a powerful and diversified fundraising strategy across multiple fundraising streams to attract Corporate clients, Philanthropic prospects and the public arena to raise funds to establish a new Wellness & Education Center to support these Carers 24/7.
