Our Story

The Carers Collective was seeded through the Nillumbik Women’s Leadership and Connections Program in May 2021. Two local carers, Nicole and Myra, had a vision of connecting and empowering carers in the local community, as they knew firsthand that carers can often find themselves socially isolated, overworked and overwhelmed with the day-to-day life, disability and mental health systems and the emotional toll that can significantly impact quality of life.


They wanted to create a community of local carers that could connect, share and build resilience through focusing on improving the health and wellbeing together as a collective.  Hence, the Carers Collective was born.  


Along the way they met Sandra, equally as passionate as connecting and empowering carers and is now a Carer Champion of those caring for a loved one with an age-related condition.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in supporting the Carers Collective or volunteering your time and expertise to this wonderful community.
