Supporting Young LGBTIQ Carers – online learning for workers

Carers Victoria has produced an online resource to help workers support carers like you. The Supporting Young LGBTIQ Carers online learning program talks about the experience of young LGBTIQ people with caring responsibilities and provides tips for workers on how to make their services more inclusive

This online learning program has been developed with participation from young people across Victoria and together with our project partners. 

Contact us on 1800 242 636 or email education@carersvictoria.org.au for more information on this new online resource.
