We provide support to empower people for greater independence.
Cara is a member of Ability First Australia
Ability First Australia is a strategic alliance of leading disability service providers working to ensure that every Australian living with disabilities, and their families, has access to programs that maximise their potential by creating opportunities for them to make their own choices.
These organisations are amongst Australia’s oldest and most respected charities. All were established from the 1920s onwards to support children living with the results of polio, cerebral palsy and related conditions
Cara is a registered charitable organisation
Cara is a not-for-profit, or, as we like to say, a profit-for-purpose. That means all money we raise goes straight back to supporting our stakeholders: children and adults with disability in our Cara Community.
Cara is a charitable organisation you can trust, which is why we display the Registered Charity Tick. It's is a logo that registered charities can use to show their charity status. By displaying the Registered Charity Tick, charities show that they are transparent, accountable and meet the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission’s (ACNC) governance standards and reporting requirements.
