Infobus on June 7th - Young Carers

Young carers are people up to 25 years of age who provide unpaid care or support a family member or friend who has a disability, mental illness, drug or alcohol dependency, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is frail.

 

There are over 275,000 young carers in Australia, which equates to between 2-3 carers in every classroom.
