We’re proud to announce the launch of ‘Uplift’ – our brand new magazine just for young carers.
We held a competition on the Young Carers of Northern Sydney Facebook page to allow the young carers themselves to give input on what they think the new magazine newsletter should be called with the winner receiving an iPad plus their story featured in the first edition – December 2017.
“I was really impressed at the quality of entries by our fans. It’s great to see young people getting creative and expressing their ideas on what they think the magazine should be about,” said Marise, one of the Young Carers Program Coordinators.
Thanks to the winner Tara for her entry of ‘Uplift.’ “The name is meant to represent what the Northside Young Carers program brings to us (young carers and their families) and what it does – it UPLIFTS us from those times to help people in our family who need it the most,” said Tara who worked on the idea with her mum.
Inside the magazine, you’ll find information and contacts for young carers to get support, mentoring opportunities, upcoming events like outdoor bush camps and surf lesson and beach days, stories and tips, plus photos from past events. It’s a really great way for young people to get involved and be connected with other young carers like themselves.
