Supporting young carers in the NT
Are you one of the thousands of young carers in the Territory? Thank you! You are amazing and what you do is so, so important.
Many young carers don’t really see themselves as a ‘carer’.
But if you help out with cleaning or cooking, help someone get around the house, or help with medicine, showering or dressing then you are a carer.
Even though it feels good to help someone you love, being a young carer can sometimes be hard work. It can sometimes make you feel tired and frustrated and give you less time to hang out with friends, do your homework, have a job or just have time to yourself.
We’re here to help young carers get a handle on their caring role and to take away some of the pressure so life is a bit easier.
