Henry Carus + Associates Sponsorships
Henry Carus + Associates’ mantra of “You Deserve More” is at the heart of our brand and it defines and guides us to do what is right. Because of this we choose to partner with and support a number of organisations who strive to make positive change in Australia.
Here is a list of the organisations we sponsor and how we help them:
Proudly Sponsoring Jason Sleep
Jason Sleep is a source of inspiration and an all-around great guy! A self-professed adrenaline junkie, Jason has a history of survival and overcoming enormous obstacles. He has broken 76 bones in his life. In 2001, Jason survived a major accident when he struck a tree while riding a race bike. The accident caused severe spinal injury resulting in paraplegia (paralysis below the waist), requiring Jason to use a wheelchair. Jason became a double amputee in 2013 due to a broken leg causing infections in both legs.
After the accident, Jason had a 3 ½-year fight with the TAC that ultimately ended up in court. This is how Jason was introduced to Henry Carus—first as a client and, today, a dear friend.
Throughout the years, Jason has not only maintained his admirable positivity but has worked and continues to work with other disabled individuals in the community. He has provided tireless support for them emotionally and coached them physically in day-to-day life and in sports.
Jason lives by the philosophy: ‘What drives me is no matter how busted up you are, you can succeed. Just put in 110% and you will succeed.’
And succeed he does. Jason is an elite water skier. He was recently awarded the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation Athlete of the Year for 2022 (an honour he has won in two previous years). Other achievements include:
- 14-time Australian Slalom Champion
- 2-time World Slalom Champion
- Trick World Champion
- 3-time Australian Trick Champion
- 2-time Oceania Slalom Champion
- Oceania Trick Champion
- Australian trick record and world record
- Oceania trick and slalom record
Henry Carus + Associates is proud to continue sponsoring Jason as he competes in these upcoming events both in Australia and around the world:
- Aussie Masters in January 2023
- State Titles February 2023
- Nationals April 2023
- World Championships USA September 2023
- Oceania Titles February 2024
To add to Jason’s list of achievements, he recently became the first person to obtain a trike licence from VicRoads. The accident made it impossible for Jason to ride a two-wheel, and VicRoads refused to grant permission for Jason to ride a motorbike on his car licence.
For 10 months, Jason fought to obtain a licence for a three-wheel. With his new trike licence in hand, Jason has opened the doorway for other disabled people to experience the freedom of the open road on a motorbike.

Amber Community – Shine a Light on Road Safety
Henry Carus + Associates is proud to be partnered with Amber Community – a not-for-profit organisation contributing to the safety and well-being of road users in Victoria. This partnership is representative of each of our commitments to the safety of the Victorian people. Sharing the same vision has allowed Henry Carus + Associates and Amber Community to collaborate in an effort to spread awareness of the dangers we face every day on our roads and the consequences these accidents have long-term on an injured person and their family.
We look forward to celebrating the 10th anniversary of the ‘Shine a Light on Road Safety’ walk at Albert Park Lake on Sunday 7 May 2023. For more information and to get involved click here.
For the past few years, Henry Carus + Associates have worked to support the inspiring efforts of Foodbank Victoria. From making cash donations during the aftermath of the devastating bushfires in 2019 to corporate volunteer days picking and packing meals, our firm are advocates for this worthy cause.
In addition to serving more than 140,000 vulnerable and needy Victorians every month, the organisation has been a pillar of support in the wake of devastating floods, the ongoing threat of coronavirus (COVID-19), and the cost-of-living crisis facing many Australians. We are proud to support the work Foodbank Victoria does to meet the essential needs in our community.
