Carers Australia is hosting a Policy Forum in Canberra on Tuesday 24 March 2020 to discuss important issues affecting young carers. CHF will be funding one member of the Youth Health Forum to attend this event.
The 2020 Young Carer Policy Forum will bring together academics, young carers and their advocates, service providers, and public policy makers to explore the needs of young carers and the current gaps in the support they need. Carers Australia will also be launching new, in-depth findings on young carers’ experience in secondary and tertiary education. The forum will also explore gaps in the current definition of young carers and look more broadly at the nature of the supports needed beyond those currently available.
If you are interested in coming to Canberra for this Forum please fill in the form below by the Sunday 23 February 2020. If you have any questions please get in touch with Carolyn (02 6273 5444 or c.thompson@chf.org.au).
