Every family is different and every caring situation is different. Examples of support we may offer to address the social and emotional impact of caring include:
A home-visit assessment undertaken by a qualified health professional with the young carer, their family and the cared for person to understand the impact and nature of the caring role, and the needs of the family
A detailed referral plan for the young carer and their family aimed at connecting or providing them with practical support
Assisted referral to services, follow-up and review of support received
Limited financial assistance for recreation and personal development or essential household items
CaringKids is dedicated to providing practical support for young people, 18 years or less, who care for a family member with a disability or chronic illness.
If you are a young person caring for a family member, we aim to provide you with support based on your needs.
If you would like to help us deliver services to young carers, we thank you.
