The Founders

Women Who Care was founded by Veronica Strachan and Dr Cathy Balding to inspire, instruct and involve women leaders in health, aged and community care.

We run events to help fabulous women who care to achieve their potential - and in the process help Very Special Kids achieve theirs.

We ask each event participant to make a donation to Very Special Kids through the Strachan Clan Seil sub-fund which is registered with the Australian Communities Foundation.

The Strachan Clan Seil sub-fund is currently (Dec 2017) at $18,748.35, not far from our first target of $20,000.

Veronica Strachan

Between organising WWC events, Veronica helps move people from "I can't" to "I can".  She writes, coaches, speaks and facilitates on life, leadership and loss; developing great leaders and teams to deliver great care. Her Practical Leadership coaching programs help leaders build their confidence to Show Up, Step Up, and offer the next person a Hand Up.
