Who We AreCaringKids was created in 2014 by our Founder and CEO, Margaret Skagias, to address the support needs of young carers. Margaret has spent many years delivering emotional support and respite camps for young carers. She saw first-hand the heavy responsibilities that they held and was inspired to bring more light into their lives. CaringKids is a registered charity and toy recycling social enterprise dedicated to providing bespoke Toy Boxes for children who care for disabled or chronically ill family members. With every bespoke hand-picked and packed Toy Box that we courier across Australia, we recognise and honour the unique contribution that each child makes whilst caring for a family member. Our Toy Boxes raise much needed awareness of the existence of young carers. Learn More
