Who Cares in Brimbank?

Some young people provide extra support and care for a family member who has a disability, mental illness, chronic illness or is frail aged. Caring can be so rewarding but also challenging.

1 in 10 carers are under 25 years. In Victoria, there are more than 71,600 young people with caring responsibilities. That’s a lot of young people who care!

Many services can help young people balance their time between providing care and support while still having fun and staying connected to school and/or work.

If you or a family member need help with your caring role check out the Who Cares in Brimbank Referral Guide.

Call our Youth Support Team for more info 9249 4110.
