What does this organisation do?
Carclew’s mission is to ignite the arts for children and young people and kick start careers through programs that benefit children and young people of diverse backgrounds, particularly those with limited access and opportunity.
Carclew’s programs consist of workshops, events, arts projects, funding programs, and skills development opportunities for children and young people aged up to 26 years.
Low income families and the long term unemployed
Employment is a significant factor in our wellbeing. Employment provides financial independence, improves our physical and mental health, expands our social networks and builds our skills.
On the flip side, long term unemployment or underemployment negatively impacts our wellbeing. It contributes to poor mental and physical health, social isolation and poverty. And it can negatively impact the wellbeing of our children.
