Meet Alana

Alana’s future never looked better.

“I’m a carer. I care for my two children that are both NDIS participants; they have autism, both of them.”
“Before I had my children, I was self-employed. It was part of my plan for how I could accommodate work-life balance with having children.” “I wasn't to know then that my children would have extra needs. I heard about Carers Queensland because they were the Partners in the Community that were looking after my children's NDIS plans.”

What Carers Are Saying…

“Being a young carer, it can be quite hard to get into the workplace. I had been looking for something for a while. A worker at Your Caring Way got me a student placement with Anglicare SA, which is really good.”

Hanna, Carer

“I didn't think it was possible to have the opportunity to be involved, so I felt like my caring needs excluded me from being part of that community and Your Caring Way has opened me up to that opportunity.”

Diana, Carer

“Having somebody that could help me clean up my resume was really good. One of the things that I was struggling with was how do you put into your resume, the skills that you’ve learned from caring for somebody for so long? Nick my vocational coach, helped immensely with putting it into a term that it can be valued in a work setting.”

Natasha, Carer

“What I really liked about the program was the coaching; it was very supportive and showed me different options. Basically, in my mind, coaching helped me visualise my future. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to achieve their goals.”

Christopher , Carer

“I’ve been very touched and grateful for what the program has done for me.”

Stephen, Carer

“To be able to get my head out of what was happening at home was wonderful and to be able to do it online without leaving the house was great.”

Gayle, Carer

“It was a great experience. Dennis helped me to update my resume and talked through job opportunities and also perhaps some study options to upskill me.”

Terri, Carer

“Your Caring Way has given me really tangible options and choices and support to feel I can have that balance and to feel that they will continue to support me.”

Diana, Carer

“I contacted Your Caring Way in November last year. I had five coaching sessions and that empowered me to do the Certificate III in Individual Support course through Carers Queensland’s Registered Training Organisation (RTO).” “It’s really good to be back to work now. I feel better about myself. I feel like I’m doing something, achieving something.”

David, Carer

“Joining Your Caring Way has given me a feeling of being supported, listened to, respected, just treated well.”

Evalyn, Carer

“Your Caring Way has definitely made a big difference in my life. It’s given me skills that I’ll use in my future career and my future journey in the youth work industry.”

Hanna, Carer

“Carers Queensland’s trainers are great. They are very helpful in any support that you need. I find that they want you to succeed. They are always willing to do extra training times for you and go out of their way to help you get a placement and things like that. I could not be happier.”

Kim, Carer

“To be able to get my head out of what was happening at home was wonderful and to be able to do it online without leaving the house was great.”

Gayle, Carer

“I completed the Skills for Success course. Volunteering didn’t come to my mind at the beginning, but I had a great Coach and then, my goal was to do volunteering work. Also, my Placement Officer, helped me find volunteering opportunities available, close to my home and suitable for me.”

Socrates, Carer

“Your Caring Way has made a difference in my life, the fact that they’ve listened, and they’ve been so proactive that really impressed me, rang me back right in time before I finished my previous job. I’m really happy that there are still organisations looking at people in a holistic way.”

Evalyn, Carer

“Before I made the call to Your Caring Way, I thought I had to make a choice between myself as the carer and myself as an individual, and they've shown me that I can put those together and I can be everything I want to be. I feel that this program is unique and desperately needed for carers.”

Diana, Carer

“Your Caring Way helped me access training and get motivated to find some work.”

Kylie, Carer

“The courses were wonderful. They were my sanity saver. It was a time for me to do something for myself that was doable while caring for my partner.”

Gayle, Carer

“Manual handling has been a big learning experience. Also being patient, listening carefully to what the residents have to say. But the most satisfying aspect of it all is enabling people to do the things they want to do.”

David, Carer

“By the time the course was ready, my placement officer Shauna got me into the job.”

“She helped me get my resume up to date and make it more professional.”

Shawn, Carer

“I’ve had a really good experience with the Your Caring Way program. They’re very good especially when it comes to study options.”

Sandra, Carer

“I wouldn’t be able to do my study without Your Caring Way or Carers Queensland and Carers Tasmania. I would not be where I am today without them.”

Rebecca, Carer

“I am employed now, working part-time, studying part-time and I also feel like I am being the best mother and carer for my son and my daughter. I am really thankful for Your Caring Way and Carers Queensland.”

Lucy, Carer

Rosa, Carer

“The vocational coaching was really helpful; it actually had an impact on my situation earlier than expected.”

Michelle, Carer

“Your Caring Way supported me in getting my own business off of the ground.  They assisted me with my study habits, getting an ABN and a business name, and providing direction around setting up my business.”

Joanne, Carer

“Carers Queensland’s trainers are great. They are very helpful in any support that you need. I find that they want you to succeed. They are always willing to do extra training times for you and go out of their way to help you get a placement and things like that. I could not be happier.”

Kim, Carer

“Thank you, Your Caring Way, for giving me a chance to enter the workforce at my own pace and in my own time.”

Gayle, Carer

“Having a Vocational Coach with Your Caring Way who was instrumental in hearing what I really wanted to do, which is community engagement; giving back a lot of knowledge and life experience as a carer, and also as a mother and indigenous woman.”

Jasmin, Carer

“Your Caring Way gave me confidence by enabling me to see that they would align me with organisations that knew that carers need that flexibility for us to attend our caring responsibilities without feeling guilty about it.”

Jasmin, Carer

“I had three coaching sessions which were very helpful. It helped me bolster my confidence.”

Rosa, Carer

“Your Caring Way has absolutely made a difference in my life.”

Sandra, Carer

“What worked for me was the connection to understanding my needs and understanding me as a carer. They stepped me through talking about what I was looking for and what I was feeling as a carer to help me identify what I needed to get back into my life.”

Diana, Carer
