First Nations

  • United Federation of Volunteers for Refugees Action, believe in equal rights and opportunities for everyone and we respond to the unique needs we care for our Communities.

  • We are here to improve the quality of life for all individuals in our communities throughout Queensland.

 

Are you a participant or carer? Or maybe you know someone who is.

  • We know that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are more likely to care for another person with a disability, long-term illness, or frail-aged than non-Indigenous Australians.

  • Many will accept their caring role as a normal part of family and community life.

  • You may not think of yourself as a carer, but providing unpaid care and support to family members or friends makes you a family carer.

  • As a community based charitable organization, offers a range of services in partners with other services providers to support all participants, carers across Queensland.
