Young Carers Program – Crane Library Web Pick of the Week

The Young Carers Project, in partnership with the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP), engaged in a joint research/knowledge translation project to:

  1. Identify the needs of young carers in the community
  2. Create resources that will help them meet their needs and manage in their roles
  3. Help community agencies understand how they can better support young carers

In 2015, The Young Carers Project launched three new research-based resources created by young carers and distributed to other young carers to help them better cope with their situations, including Support Matters – a By Us For Us guide, a short documentary film and website.
