Pen Pal Program for young carers expands

Young Carers Western Australia & Young Carers Bristol & South Gloucestershire Pen Pal Program, now has a new member – Scarborough & Ryedale Young Carers, United Kingdom.


The program initiative was developed between Carers WA in partnership with Bristol Young Carers UK.

Young carers in Australia have the opportunity to form long-lasting friendships with young carers in the UK, through the Carers WA Pen-Pal Program.

The aim of the Young Carers WA and Young Carers UK Pen-Pal Program is to help create a peer-to-peer support system for young carers whilst having fun.


Due to the success and demand to join the program, Carers WA are more than happy to welcome Scarborough & Ryedale Young Carers UK.


For more information and to apply to join the program, please contact Carers WA on youngcarerswa@carerswa.asn.au or call us on 1300 CARERS (1300 227 377).
