Peer Support

Four Young Carers stand together as part of a circle. One holds a blue soccer ball to her chest and she is laughing and looking off towards the right. The others stand, hands by their side or crossed together, looking off in the same direction and smiling. They are in a room with windows looking out to lots of trees and a campsite.

Our Peer Support program is delivered in a group setting and provides a safe space for Young Carers to connect with other young people ‘who just get it’.

Throughout the program, Young Carers have the opportunity to connect with other Young Carers who have a range of different caring roles and responsibilities, in a safe and inclusive environment led by our friendly staff.

The regular sessions include a fun ice breaker, and interactive games and activities to stimulate discussions focused on health and wellbeing, identity, and caring roles. The program is a great way to create friendships and learn from each other’s shared experiences.

Two Young Carers sit on a grey couch with a multicoloured geometric patterned cushion in between them. Taylar sits on the right, her face resting on one hand, wearing a black t-shirt. Danny is sitting on the left and is talking, using his hands to describe what he is saying, a notebook resting on his lap. Both Young Carers are smiling.

The Details

Our Peer Support program is currently run for Young Carers aged 7 to 25 years old and is divided into relevant age groups.

This program is currently delivered online and face-to-face in some locations.

Here’s a pretty fun fact in our series celebrating Pride Month!

The first Pride flag was designed by gay artist Gilbert Baker in 1978. This iconic rainbow flag originally had eight stripes, with each colour symbolising different concepts, such as life, healing, art, and sunlight ☀️🎨

It’s Pride Month, and we`re excited to honour and celebrate our LGBTQIA+ community as we share some fascinating facts about the history and significance of Pride over the next few weeks!

The world’s very first Pride march took place in New York City on June 28th, 1970. This historic event commemorated the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a pivotal moment in the fight for LGBTQIA+ rights.
