YC Drive

Support for young carers aged 16 to 25 to attain their driver license.

YC Drive, Carers NSW learner driver mentoring program, supports young carers to attain their driver license by linking them to a Volunteer Driver Mentor. Funded by the Department of Family and Community Services, the YC Drive Program assists young carers aged 16 to 25 to achieve their required hours of supervised driving so they can undertake their on-road driving test.

YC Drive aims to increase independence, and break down barriers for young carers to increase their access to employment and education opportunities. YC Drive is currently being piloted in the Canterbury Bankstown area, and will be rolled out across NSW in the coming years. 

Young Carers

Young carers living in or near the Canterbury Bankstown area, and aged 25 years or younger, may be eligible for this program.
