The Carer’s Foundation

2018 Grant Winner

The Carers Foundation Australia was the 2018 Women & Change Grant Recipient. The $50,000 grant was used to provide respite for teenage carers as young as 14. Many have cared for sick or disabled parents, and often siblings their entire lives and many suffer from depression and isolation. Some say they have never known happiness. The respite service provided by the team at the Carers Foundation rebuilds the mental and physical health of these children who bear an enormous responsibility. Respite for Carers is not currently supported by the NDIS and The Carers Foundation Australia research confirms they are the only provider of this service.
