CREATE Foundation is the national consumer body representing the voices of children and young people with an out-of-home care experience (including kinship care, foster care and residential care).
We provide programs and services for children and young people with a statutory care experience and develop policy and research to advocate for a better care system.
In Tasmania our office is in Hobart, but our workshops and events are undertaken across the State including in the South, North and North West.
The Programs we offer include:
The Create Your Future (CYF) Program. The is a series of Life Skills Workshops that support young people aged 13-25 in their transition from care to independence.
Youth Advisory Groups (YAG). YAGS are forums for children and young people aged 10-25 to meet regularly to discuss issue they are facing within the care system. A fun activity is usually included.
Speak Up Program. Speak Up is a three-level training program for young people age 13 to 25 who want to become a CREATE Young Consultant. Participants learn about the care system and develop advocacy, leadership and public speaking skills. Young Consultants help out at events, workshops, attend meeting when possible, speaking engagements and forums.
Connection Events. CREATE Tasmania hosts events that enable children, young people and their carers to connect and have fun. We host events for Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Sibling Day.
