Frankston/Peninsula Carers Inc. (FPC) was formed as a result of the unacceptable crisis in accommodation options and support for adults with intellectual disability and their aging carers both on the Mornington Peninsula and nationally.
Apart from the 24/7 emotional and physical drain, the overwhelming concern of these carers is 'what will happen to my child when I die'.
FPC was incorporated in 2007 without any funding, but received grateful assistance in its infancy from the Mornington Peninsula Shire and Frankston City Councils.
The Charity was fortunate and continues to be managed by a dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer committee. Our aim is to raise money to build housing for adults with intellectual disability.
