Are you under 25 years old? Are you caring for someone with a mental health issue, disability, drug or alcohol issue or other chronic illness? Then you may be eligible for some support through the Young Carers Program.
We can help by meeting with you to talk about your caring role and what might be the best respite options for you.
If you have siblings that help with your caring role they may be eligible too!
What could we do for you?
- School help with tutoring, fee assistance, books or uniforms.
- Respite through recreational activities that you choose. This may be music lessons or sporting activities that give you some time out on a regular basis.
- Help at home with your usual caring tasks such as cooking, cleaning or shopping during stressful times.
- Young carer activities and events. Come along and have fun with other young carers and have a break.
