What is Launchme

Launchme is a free initiative offering young carers the opportunity to develop, finance and launch their own startup. Successful applicants will work alongside other young people to create their business ideas from scratch with support from experts in the field.

How can Launchme help you?

Launchme is about allowing you to balance your role as a carer, while providing the support and assistance you need to start up a career outside of caring. All successful applicants will gain access to these services.

Jessica Watson, Young Entrepreneur

“Through my sailing adventures and as the co-founder of a start-up, I’ve come to appreciate how important it is to have support on a number of different levels. The comprehensive support LaunchME for Young Carers’ participants will get to develop new skills is invaluable. If you are a young carer, I’d encourage you to apply today.”
