Events

Join us on Tuesday 24 March to discuss the important issues affecting young carers!


Held at the National Press Club in Canberra, 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 receive.

Carers Australia will be launching new, in-depth findings on young carers’ experiences in secondary and tertiary education. The forum will also explore the current definition of 'young carers' and look more broadly at the nature of the supports needed beyond those currently available.

The one-day event will enable researchers, service providers and policy makers to deliver innovative research, recommendations, and strategies applicable to policy and sector work.

There will be a full program of keynote speakers, panels, and networking opportunities.

When: Tuesday 24 March 2020 

Location: National Press Club, Barton, ACT
