Pen Pal Program

An “old school” pen pal program, revived and re-designed to promote and encourage connections, peer support, friendships, and literacy.

The Pen Pal program has generated great interest within the UK and has expanded across Australia. Carers Northern Territory and Carers Queensland have recently joined this great initiative, connecting carers together, no matter the distance.

To express interest in becoming a pen pal with one of our partner organisations, fill out an Expression of Interest form.

The Pen Pal Program includes:

Bristol and South Gloucestershire Young Carers UK, Carers Plus Yorkshire UK Pen Pal Program (for young carers aged 8-25)

WECIL UK, Ryedale Special Families Pen Pal Program (for young people aged 10-25 with a disability)

Pen Partners Program (for family carers 25 – 80 years+)
