The Young Carers Project, in partnership with the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP), engaged in a joint research/knowledge translation project to:
- Identify the needs of young carers in the community
- Create resources that will help them meet their needs and manage in their roles
- 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.
