    EPICΒ (Empowering Parents In Crisis) provide peer support to parents and carers of young people in crisis. EPIC recognises parents as first responders to their children and supports them by creating a safe, non judgmental community that empowers parents with the knowledge, skills and confidence to enable them to best support their young person, their family and themselves.Β 

    Youth Up FrontΒ is a registered Australian charity that helps young people transition from adolescence to adulthood. We have inspired more than 100,000 students over more than 20 years. Together we improve the lives of childrenΒ by providing outreach and vocational programmes, mentoring, case worker and personal development support.

    Carer Gateway’s Young Carer program is a federal government initiative that supports young people aged between 12 and 24 who provide support to a family member or friend who has a medical condition, a mental health concern, a disability or is frail due to age. The program delivers a range of free supports and services to assist these Young Carers.
