Are you a young carer under 18 years and struggling with school? Or you may be a young adult carer up to 25 years looking for information and services. An Australian Government initiative, the Young Carer Respite and Information Services can help you with education support, respite and access to services to improve your wellbeing and achieve your goals.
If you’re a young person who has, or shares, the responsibility of caring for a family member or friend who is older or has a disability, the Young Carer Program is here to lend a hand.
While caring for someone can be hugely rewarding, there are challenges involved for young carers who are also trying to study and stay at school. We understand these challenges and can help in a variety of ways. The Young Carer Respite and Information Services program can help young carers like you with tuition; respite during exam times, when an assignment is due or just to study. The program can also help with taking part in school activities, counselling and referring you to ongoing services.
The priority of this service is to help you succeed at school and complete your education. If you’re a young carer who has left school, we can support you with information and referral services.
