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.
