Take a break

We provide a variety of programs and services to help people living with CF and their families who need a break or respite across Victoria and NSW.  

All our programs are available in both NSW and Victoria unless otherwise mentioned. To be eligible to receive our programs and services, you must be a current member of Cystic Fibrosis Community Care.

Please note that due to funding arrangements, some of our programs may be once-off programs or may have a closing date. Some funding bodies who support these programs may also require people to provide certain information such as proof of purchase so that we can acquit the grant.

Take A Break Program (VIC)

Our Take A Break Program supports members in Victoria who are aged 21 years or older and have CF to get away and have a break. The program is generously funded by Andrew’s Legacy. Andrew Carr passed away in 2008, and it was his wish that his family and friends donate money in lieu of flowers to fund the program. Andrew wanted other adults living with CF to enjoy quality time away from the ‘hum-drum’ of life – something he and his wife Melissa found so valuable. Andrew’s family and CF Community Care are grateful to all who have contributed and continue to contribute to Andrew’s Legacy.

Applications for 2021 will close 1 December 2021 (or earlier if all grants have been distributed).

Simon’s Adventure Fund

Simon’s Adventure Fund has been generously established by Simon Minson’s family. Its aim is to enable people aged 18 years and over who have CF to participate in an activity on their bucket list. It may be something that pushes the boundaries or it may be something that seems a little crazy. Simon was always up for an adventure. He snowboarded, skydived, bungy jumped, shot down rapids, dived with sharks, was a keen trail bike rider, got dangerously close to a brown bear in the wild, loved being behind the scenes at the zoo and played footy against guys twice his size!

He chose to live his life to the full with adventures large and small. Simon died in 2014 from complications due to his CF while on one of these adventures with his mates in Vietnam. Simon’s family want people with CF to live life to the full and so they have established Simon’s Adventure Fund to assist others to experience their own adventure.

Applications for 2021 will close 1 December 2021 (or earlier if all grants have been distributed).
