Investing in a new state of wellbeing
icare Foundation is a social venture. We're committed to redefining how we think about insurance and care and to making a difference in our community.
We established icare Foundation in 2016 to invest in partners who can improve wellbeing outcomes for injured workers, road users, their families and carers. We fund organisations that are taking a fresh approach to injury and loss prevention, health and wellbeing, and recovery.

$1.5 million investment
New technologies have great potential to improve the lives of people with disability. But right now people with disability are less likely to benefit from digital technology than the general population.
That’s why we’ve invested in Remarkable: an organisation supports start-ups in inclusive and assistive technologies with a focus on achieving functional and economic benefits for people with disability.
Remarkable provides training, mentoring and seed funding to help start-ups bring fully fledged products to market, all the while keeping the focus on social impact.
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.
Between 2016 and 2018 we provided over $14.3 million in funds to support 38 vital programs and research projects in the injury prevention, health promotion and recovery space.
