As part of our 2018 – 2021 Strategic Plan, CREATE wants to make sure that the diversity of children and young people is respected throughout their care experiences. We want children, young people, teachers, carers, caseworkers and everyone else in our community to realise that there is no such thing as a ‘typical foster kid’. Children and young people with a care experience are all unique, but they can face discrimination and stigma in many forms.
CREATE wants to #SnapthatStigma and change the pre-conceived views that people may have about children and young people with a care experience. At CREATE, we are passionate about the strength and unique talents of children and young people around Australia and believe in supporting all young people to reach their full potential. It all starts with believing that children and young people are more than just their care experience.
Do you know a young person in care achieving amazing things?
Help CREATE snap that stigma and share a positive story over social media, just hashtag #snapthatstigma or email firstname.lastname@example.org
