The icare foundation story

We’re committed to making a difference in our community. To do this, we are disrupting the way foundations do things and setting a new benchmark for innovative funding and partnerships.

Who we are

The icare foundation is a social venture. Every day we’re working to make sure the people of NSW stay safe and healthy at work and on the roads, and have the support they need to recover from injury.

We do this by collaborating with, and funding organisations that are taking a fresh approach to injury prevention, health and wellbeing, and recovery.

Our impact

Since the foundation was established, we have committed over $25 million in funding to support seed, scale and research projects in the injury prevention, health promotion and recovery space.

Already, we have positively impacted the lives of thousands of people who live in NSW. We plan to continue collaborating and funding innovators who are making real in-roads and trailblazing new paths in injury recovery and prevention, and health and wellbeing.

How did we get here?

We were established in 2016 with the aim of partnering and connecting a diverse range of support organisations with the people who need them - injured workers and road users, their families, carers and employers, today and in the future. Between now and 2021 we will invest a total of $100 million into innovative initiatives and research projects that focus on injury prevention, treatment and recovery.

Our philosophy

We are passionately committed to protecting and caring for the health and wellbeing of the people of NSW. That’s why we’re shaking-up and disrupting the traditional role of a foundation, because we believe that breakthroughs come from innovation.

We look to partner and collaborate with people who are thinking differently and trying new approaches to tackle problems at their core.
