Care inc. is a community organisation set up to ensure low income consumers are treated fairly and have support to overcome debt.



A selection of Care's publications is available via the links. New materials are added regularly.

Development of this part of Care's website has been made possible by a donation from Canberra Consumers Inc (CC).

Having been established in the early 1960s CC wound up its operations as a not-for-profit, volunteer consumer body in mid-2005. Care recognises the important role that CC played in the development of consumer issues in the ACT and nationally over its 40 year life span.
