Young Person Grants



Are you aged 14-25 years with a care experience & want to have your voice amplified and heard to see change? Apply for a grant to be fully funded to attend the voices in action conference today! 
We want children and young people with a care experience to reach their full potential and to have the same opportunities that those who are not in the care system have, but to do this we need to make sure the out-of-home care system works for them.  

Applications closed at 5pm AEST, Tuesday 14 November 2023.

We need you to have your say

At this conference we will have over 200 young people with a care experience from around Australia discuss the care system’s BIG issues with carers, workers and care sector leaders AND come up with what needs to change to make things better. We can’t do this without your experience and knowledge!
