Update: Watch This Space
We are very excited to report that Watch This Space is in full swing! To date, the Young Carer Team have presented to over 1,250 students and 175 teachers, school counselors and education staff. Over the coming months we will continue to be travelling across NSW to co-facilitate young carer awareness workshops with YCs in various schools and universities.
Here is what some of the schools have been saying about our workshop:
“One of the best presentations from a government service or NGO I have ever seen/experienced.”
“It was an outstanding presentation that should be done in all schools!”
“Very eye-opening to hear a first-hand story from a YC at school. Definitely raised my awareness, thank you!”
And more big news – on the 13th of September we have our first regional community Watch This Space workshop in Bathurst! Being held from 4.30pm to 7.30pm at the Bathurst RSL, we look forward to hosting this free information and training evening and giving Bathurst teachers the opportunity to meet and network with each other while learning how to identify and support young carers.
If there is a school you would like to nominate for our Watch This Space program, please email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
