YOUNG CARER PROJECT
The Young Carer Project adopts a whole of school approach to engineer a kind, safe and supportive school environment where Young Carers can thrive. To do this, the Project engages key teachers and wellbeing staff, Young Carers and the broader school community, conducting training, workshops and online modules.
In every Australian classroom, two to three students will be providing unpaid care for a family member with a disability, chronic or mental illness, or addiction. The Young Carer Project believes in a school community where Young Carers have equal access to educational opportunities as their peers.
