If you work in the education, community or health sectors, you can make a difference to the lives of young carers and their families. The Young Carer Program offers training to help you do this. If you are a young carer or family member, you can encourage your local schools, universities or youth centres to organise Young Carer Awareness Training.

Did you know…? It is estimated that there are 83,700 young carers in NSW. Knowing how to support young carers in an appropriate and sensitive way could make a big difference to them and their family. To assist with this, Carers NSW has developed Young Carer Awareness Training. Training is based on Australian and international research as well as the extensive experience of Carers NSW. Training includes an experiential, interactive activity called Through the Cracks. For more information or to request a workshop, please click the links below.
