Carers Victoria is the peak body representing all unpaid carers in Victoria. We provide services and advice for carers, as well as education workshops, programs and events across the state.
We are a social purpose peak body with a charitable focus, supporting and empowering unpaid carers in Victoria. We take pride in championing all unpaid carers across Victorian communities regardless of the nature of their caring role or the needs of the care recipient.
Our purpose is to ensure caring is the joint responsibility of community, government and family. Nobody knows carers like we do. As the only whole-of-state organisation representing Victorian carers, we are in a unique position to understand, influence and affect change across all aspects of our communities.
Our unique status as both a social purpose peak body and service provider gives us knowledge and deep insights which we leverage across both our roles. We understand current and emerging issues in the care sector, and we work with government, other peak bodies, service providers, and private organisations to address these challenges.
