We’re on a mission.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP.
Feros Care has been working with communities for over 30 years, helping older Australians and people with disability to live healthier, happier and better-connected lives.
We continue to be inspired by George Feros, who took a bell to the streets of Byron Bay in the 1980s to raise money to help the vulnerable.
In his name, thousands of people continue to receive support, care and friendship every year. And as a registered charity, people ask us every day – “How can we help?”
Be like George.
(AND IT DOESN’T INVOLVE A BELL.)
Over the last three decades, we’ve come to understand just how important it is for us to develop impactful social programs to support those who are lonely.
Connecting with others and our communities is as vital for our health and happiness as the air we breathe. Devastatingly, chronic loneliness and isolation is a way of life, with one in four Australians identifying as lonely.
Together, we can change that, and we’ve made it easy for you to support our work in changing lives.
Whether you’d like to make a donation, fundraise on our behalf, partner with us as an organisation or volunteer your time, putting your name to the work of Feros Care will impact the lives of others for years to come.
A donation helps us to implement and scale impactful programs, bringing hope to Australians unnecessarily grappling with loneliness.
You can make a one-off donation now. Or go easy on your wallet and budget a recurring donation instead. It’s easy, efficient and what’s more, every month, someone will feel less lonely – all because of you.
We are a registered charity with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, which means you can receive a tax deduction for all donations over $2.
Donating to Feros Care is a wonderful act of kindness. If you would like further information please contact Jo Winwood, Head of Fundraising for further information. We’d love to hear from you.

Before the VSC I was feeling very isolated and lonely. Being ill has meant I haven’t been able to go to church, visit friends or be an active part of my community. The Virtual Social Centre has been a lifeline
