Young Carer Advocacy Focus Group Registration (ages 15-18)

March 10 - May 30

Free

The Young Carer Advocacy Project is designed to give Young Carers a platform to influence your community and create policy change across Australia. 

As a Young Carer aged 15-24, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a focus group session and contribute to the research and development of a policy report. This report will guide the Australian Government on how Young Carers can be better supported within Australian society. 

Find your location and register below for a focus group! Note, these sessions are specifically for ages 15-18. If you’re aged between 19-24, register for a focus group here.

Eligibility for the program:

  • Aged 15 – 18
  • Currently residing in Australia
  • Experience (past or present) as a Young Carer
  • Willingness to share your story and your caring role with others

Some of the benefits of being involved:

  • Use your voice to advocate for young people in caring roles
  • Build a network of people with similar lived experiences
  • Increase your knowledge of the Carer space in Australia and how you can best navigate it 
  • Contribute to policy change for Young Carers in Australia
