How to Refer

The registration process for the Carers NSW Young Carer Program is simple and free. The registration form can be completed over the phone or sent to the young carer team via post, email or fax. Alternatively, a young person can register online by clicking here.

If you are a professional, please ensure that you have consent from the young person and their parent or guardian to conduct a guided referral. If you do not have consent, you can call us on (02) 9280 4744 to discuss the situation and see how we can assist.

What happens next?

Once the young person is registered, we will contact the family and young person and chat about their needs. With the family’s consent we will then link them in with local services that can assist them with their caring role. The young person will receive our monthly young carer e-Newsletter as well as leadership opportunities, competitions, counselling and other supports which are appropriate for their age group.
