The YC Program

Young carers are children and young people, 25 years or under, who help to support a family member or friend who has a disability, mental illness, drug or alcohol dependency, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is frail.

Did you know…? There is likely to be at least one young carer in every classroom! The Young Carer Program was developed to make a positive difference to the lives of young carers and their families. If you are a young carer, this is a free service that can support you.
