Receiving the bursary greatly helped me achieve my goal of completing year 12, it paid for my school fees, books and a myki card. I truly do not believe that I would of graduated without the bursary.- How it helped me Moreland City, VIC
The bursary provided much needed support as I would gladly provide care to my step father without financial incentive but provides a way for to both support myself and feel recognised for my efforts.- I am a carer, student and daughter City of Lake Macquarie, NSW
The young carer bursary program supported me with my education, for example getting me a laptop to study more and some books. I am working so hard with my studies so I can get a good mark and also to improve my education.- Shamsia Wagga Wagga, NSW
I help care for my younger sister. The young carers bursary helped me increase my level of knowledge by helping me a computer to help with school, they have helped me get uniform for my school and have helped me prepare for high school by giving me the equipment and support I needed.- Thanks for the help VIC
If it wasn’t for the support of my Young Carer Bursary, I wouldn’t have been able to keep going with sport and school cost, as well as transport fees. Mum is doing better and I am now playing in A grade Netball. Thank you so much Young Carer Network, without the support we wouldn’t have been able to achieve all the gifts that were provided this year- My success QLD
