Carer stories

Young carers across Australia play a huge part in contributing to our society. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics there are 272,000 carers under the age of 25, which equates to around 1 in 10 young people. The following videos, developed in promotion of National Carers Week, give an insight into the life of a young carer from the young people themselves.
