Younger Carer Program

DID YOU KNOW THAT CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS EIGHT are caring for their parent or sibling at home??

FOR LESS THAN $1 per day, YOU can help us to make a difference to particularly to a young carers lives, one carer at a time, by becoming a monthly donor.
By doing so you will be making a significant difference to a young persons life, and assist so many other forgotten young people in the community.
These young people have very little support, and DO NOT CHOOSE to be a carer.

The reality right now is that there are 420,000 Young Carers in Australia under 24 and many people have no idea they exist
• 50% living in circumstances of disadvantage
• 60% unemployed
• 40% don’t finish high school
• 2 out of 3 have a mental illness such as major anxiety disorders, isolation issues, and severe depression, leading to suicide
• Research has proven that Young carers are amongst the most marginalised groups in the Australian community
• Moments of happiness &possibility are few and far between for these young people

$30 a month you can help us to continue to Care for these young
Carers.

All you have to do is DONATE through the section on the side with your chosen amount using your CREDIT CARD -
OR
1. Set up direct debit through your own bank for $30 a month (or more if you appreciate what carers do) with your ‘surname’ in the subject; to be deposited to
BSB - 034-272
Account Number - 277244

2. Email Us with confirmation & your address for receipting purposes…

And as easy as that you will be helping us change the world for unpaid young caregivers in the community.

Your money goes towards: Wellness and Inspirational support programs for young Carers so they can be with others in similar situations, in a nurturing, inspiring and empowering environment.
It also contributes towards health and wellness workshops, Education for stress relief, and most importantly time to do the everyday things we take for granted, such as talking to others, enjoying quiet time, having a meal prepared for them, reading a book or doing some art therapy, and knowing they are appreciated for what they do.

THANK YOU for your life changing support!
