Have you got too much on your plate?


Are you struggling at school due to your caring role? Is your caring role taking too much of your time?  We can help you take some load off your shoulders.

Are you a young carer?

There are at least 235,000 young carers in Australia, and many don’t see themselves as carers.

You may provide unpaid care and support through various activities such as administering medication, assisting with personal hygiene, appointments, helping with cooking and cleaning, and assisting with mobility. These are only some examples.

You may ask who do young carers provide support to? Young carers may provide unpaid care and support to:

  • Parents
  • Siblings
  • Grandparents
  • Relatives
  • Child
  • Partner
  • Friend

All our services are free.

Our friendly team can help you figure out how to manage school, training, education and work while having a caring role.

  • Find information and advice to help you plan
  • Speak with someone outside of your situation (with our awesome coaches and counsellors)
  • Get in touch with other young carers via event and getaway
  • Get some additional support at home to help you keep on top of things
  • 24/7 emergency support is available if something happens to you
  • $3,000 Young Carer Bursary if you are studying

Apply for the $3,000 Young Carer Bursary. Ask us how.

Under the Young Carer Bursary Program, young carers can get up to $3,000. This program offers 1,000 bursaries of $3,000 each year to assist young carers with anything that they need to keep studying.

Applications close on 13 September. We can help.
