Stories of care that inspire us
Meet some extraordinary Australians.
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.
We asked Australians across the country to send in their nominations, and were overwhelmed by so many heartwarming responses. We gave away a total of $100,000 worth of care packages to 55 amazing nominees, representing diverse stories of care. From youth mentoring, to celebrating people with different abilities - here are some of the most inspiring stories we received.
Panadol is not associated with Hope In A Suitcase, The Misfit Project, Open Haven, Celebrating Abilities, and Redfern Youth Connect.

…and many more amazing Aussies all over the country championing care in their communities

What pains Aussies most?
Aussies have trusted us to support them for over 60 years, so we’re not strangers to this country’s pain points! But 2020 was an unprecedented year – we wanted to learn more about its impact and see how we could help deliver meaningful care for people.
In our 2021 Care Study, we spoke to 1,500 Australians and uncovered truly inspiring results- take a look.
