Family orange

Peoplecare is excited to partner with Merrigong’s Young People’s theatre program. The program to provides personal growth, skills and fantastic creative and educational experiences to young people across the Illawarra.

Research has even shown that participating in theatre is positive for young people’s mental health.* So we think theatre is a win–win for the local community.

Peoplecare’s investment in local youth includes:

  • subsidised theatre tickets for local students
  • funded positions in the school holidays Creativity Camp
  • plus funding for local creative productions
