Exciting paid opportunity for young carers to lead a co-design project in WA!

The Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia (YACWA) is collaborating with Red Cross WA on a co-design project that explores the needs of young carers living in Western Australia to develop ideas and solutions to the challenges they face. We are looking for five creative young people with lived experience of being a young carer to join our core team as youth consultants.

YACWA is a united, independent and active advocate for the non-government youth sector and young people.

Focusing on young people’s varied needs at local, State and Federal Government level, YACWA works to engender and enhance positive community attitudes towards young people. Our work is guided by the values of respect, equity, integrity and the celebration of diversity.
