Stories of care that inspire us

Meet some extraordinary

In 2021 we created the Panadol Care Collective to champion exceptional Australians. The kind of people who go to great lengths to make a positive difference in their communities.

For the second year, we asked Australians across the country to send in their nominations and were overwhelmed by the number of heart-warming responses. In 2022, we’ve given away a total of $107,500 worth of care packages to 31 deserving Aussies for themselves and their community, each representing diverse stories of care. From celebrating those with different abilities and teaching them core skills, to creating safe and inclusive environments within the community – here are some of the inspiring stories of care we received.

Stories of care from our 2022 Care Collective

Stay tuned over the coming months for more remarkable stories of care uncovered across the nation this year.

Luana Brock

Luana has worked in the disability field for over 40 years, dedicating her life to teaching and caring for those with disabilities. A passion for local sport led Luana to coordinating and coaching the All-Abilities netball team in Drouin. All-Abilities is a team that teaches players new skills and helps them develop social connections in the aim of driving social change.

Astrid Graham

Astrid combined her love of arts and her passion for helping people to establish Help Astrid Pay It Forward. Utilising the money she raises through selling handmade tie die socks, Astrid purchases items to make care packages and donates them to women’s and homeless shelters, and also runs a yearly toy drive to ensure no one in her community goes without.

Amy Booth

Amy has 20 years of experience as a yoga teacher and has seen firsthand the benefits that yoga and mindfulness practice have on mental health, trauma recovery and other areas. Realising that the traditional gym or workshop model of yoga was not suitable for all, Amy founded the Yoga Partnership to make yoga accessible for those that need it most.

Uncovering the state of care in Australia

Panadol has been trusted to care for Australians for over 60 years, so we’re no strangers to how Australians care for one another – it’s at the heart of what we do.

Following the events of the past two years, we surveyed 3,000 Australians to gain a deeper understanding of what care means to them and the role that our community plays in caring for one another.
