Young Carers Network by Carers Australia
Young carers are people up to 25 years old who provide unpaid care and support to family members or friends with a disability, a physical or mental illness or who are aged. To assist them the online Young Carers Network (YCN) provides information and a place to access resources, find support services, events, learn helpful tips and share their stories with others.
Through the site we also promote the Young Carers Bursary which supports young carers to continue their education. Young carers can apply for a $3000 bursary each year that they remain eligible.
At the event we will be partnered with Carers WA whose Young Carer program offers WA local information, service referrals and counselling, plus social support in the form of camps, school holiday activities and outings.
