Young Carers are amazing young people aged 18 years and under. They help care for someone who has a disability, mental illness, drug or alcohol dependence, chronic condition or who is frail.
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.
We provide MENTORING to help you identify and achieve your goals, TUTORING to help you establish good study habits and balance school with your responsibilities as a carer, RESPITE so you can take a break from looking after someone and SOCIAL ACTIVITIES to enjoy fun activities and connect with other young carers.
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.
