Life. Be in it. FamilyCare works with individuals, families and communities to increase wellbeing, build strengths and encourage optimism for a better life.
As a Licensee and advocate for Life. Be in it. FamilyCare we are committed to:

- Developing partnerships and alliances that support family and community outcomes;
- Contributing to the economic and social development of the communities in which we work;
- Investing in continuous improvement in Life. Be in it. FamilyCare practices."
We began in Victoria supporting informal family carers to set-up new micro businesses starting with family care for children where the focus is on providing more flexible quality care building better brains and healthy bodies. We expanded to include non-clinical family care for the elderly and those with a disability in November 2020 nationally.
