New Program for Schools!

young carer aware schools


This is a new program to Carers WA, run as a part of the Young Carers in Education project, and aims to help schools to put in some useful, flexible and non-intrusive ways of supporting young carers through their education. Best of all it's FREE!

If you are a young carer and think that your school might be keen to join this fantastic new initiative, then get your principal, student services manager, school psychologist or your favourite teacher to contact us.

If you are a teacher, please check out the link to the Young Carer Aware criteria for schools here for more information, or contact the Schools Project Officer,  [email protected] or 9228 7409.

**Please note that we are aware that the WACOT Professional Standards for teaching will be changing soon to National Professional Standards and our documents will be updated soon to reflect this change.
