Help our clients realise some of their dreams.

When illness or injury happens, the things that make us happy often take a back seat. Donations help provide our aged care and disability clients with opportunities to enhance their lives.

Your donation will help fund simple pleasures like:

  • A fun day out with friends
  • A trip to visit family far away
  • A ticket to see their favourite singer
  • A 'bucket list' adventure

We also use your generous gift towards:

  • New programs to improve wellbeing
  • Equipment to make someone's life more comfortable
  • Tools to help someone connect with their family
  • Important research initiatives

No matter how much you give, every donation helps bring a smile to someone who deserves it.

Help Mark make a difference

Following a severe stroke in 2014, Mark Elsing was once told he would never eat, walk or talk again.

Yet in 2021 he is about to embark on a world record challenge – the longest distance travelled in a wheelchair with one arm – to raise funds for the place he credits for his life, Brightwater Oats Street.

All funds raised will be donated to the place he credits his life, Brightwater Oats Street.

Your donations help fund these programs:

Life's Possibilities

Life's Possibilities is dedicated to opening up new opportunities for our clients by providing support for activities, outings, events, experiences or comfort that improves their socialisation and wellbeing.

This includes experiences that they’ve always dreamed of doing – it may be something as simple as attending a concert, swimming lessons, art classes or visiting the art gallery and museum. 

Donations could help provide plants and tools to create a simple garden, or equipment that makes daily life more comfortable and rewarding. Or, they could help overcome distance and practical obstacles by supporting clients to reunite with family who live far away. 

Life's Possibilities granted Lisa's wish to see Jimmy Barnes live. Read more here.

The Music Pharmacy

The Music Pharmacy gives aged care clients the chance to get involved in beneficial music programs, specifically tailored to their needs and preferences. This unique program uses evidence-based practice to link neuroscience, music therapy and psychology with music and social wellbeing.

Your generous gift will help cover the cost of instruments, equipment, music subscriptions and staff resources for thousands of Brightwater clients.

Brightwater Research Centre

Your gift can also help support research initiatives through the Brightwater Research Centre.

Behind the scenes, our researchers make a difference to the lives of many. Their findings justify our investment in new ideas and technology, and pave the way for innovation in aged care and disability support.

This fund supports research projects that benefit our clients and the wider community.
