Young Carers

The Young Carer program supports and advocates for the vital young carers of Western Australia.

A “young carer” is a person under the age of 25 who helps support a member of their household who is experiencing a mental health challenge, disability, long term health condition (including a chronic condition or terminal illness), a substance dependency or who is frail aged.

The Carers WA Young Carer team offers a range of specific services for education facilities and young carers aged 8 to 25, including free access to various supports.
