Australian National Young Carer Action Team

The Australian National Young Carer Action Team (ANYCAT) was founded in 2005 to equip Young Carers with the confidence to share their views and perspectives, and enable them to raise awareness of their caring roles among the wider community.

Carers Australia wants to continue to engage with Young Carers and obtain a deeper understanding of the issues they face.

After 13 years and over 100 ANYCAT members, Carers Australia is evolving this group to a new online engagement platform so that we can interact with an even larger group of Young Carers all across Australia.

The platform will provide Young Carers with the opportunity to:  

  • share their story, views and perspectives
  • learn from online workshops
  • contribute to our Federal policy development regarding young carers; and
  • attend online meetings with other young carers

Look out for the new Young Carer Network launching soon!
