Young Carers are amazing young people aged 18 years and under. They help care for a person who has a disability, illness, mental health issues or alcohol or drug dependence.
The person they care for may be a parent, sibling, relative, or even a friend.
The YOUNG CARERS PROGRAM supports young people who have the added responsibility of providing assistance to someone they care for. We can help you manage these responsibilities by providing you with support to get through your day, and achieve in your studies.
The Young Carers Program is particularly available for young carers who are studying at school and who may be having difficulty managing their studies as well as their caring responsibilities.
