Our Wishing Well program helps people we support achieve their dreams - from walking the hallowed turf of the MCG or a reunion with friends, to a ride on a steam train or a romantic Valentine’s dinner.
Each wish is as individual as it is special.
Bring hope, joy and happiness to a person’s life by making their dreams come true.
Nominate a Uniting AgeWell client today and the Wishing Well team will do their best to make it happen.
It’s the special moments in life that count.
All Wishes are made possible through generous donations and funds raised at the annual Uniting AgeWell Charity Golf Day.
