Grant applications open soon.
The CaringKids Grant is financial assistance available to young carers aged 18 years or under residing in South East or South West Sydney who undertake a significant caring role (primary young carer or alternate secondary carer) and are facing financial hardship. The Grant assists young carers to access Recreation & Personal Development opportunities or Household Items.
The Recreation and Personal Development category includes costs that would support a young carer to socialise, learn something new or take a break. This could include a school excursion, sports equipment or driving lessons.
The Household Items category can be used to purchase or contribute to the cost of practical items for the home that would assist the young carer and their family such as a homework desk or washing machine.
Grants are available for eligible young carers up to the value of $200. Assistance is available only once per household.
