Teachers and student welfare staff will now be better equipped to assist Canberra's young carers to juggle their caring and school responsibilities with the release of Making Education Work for Young Carers.

It's a new information kit developed by CYCLOPS ACT, a service of Anglicare and was funded through the ACT Government's Carer Recognition Grants and launched during National Carers Week. The week is to celebrate and raise awareness of the contribution made by carers of all ages and this years theme is Anyone, Anytime recognising that people often become carers unexpectedly.
