Banyule Young Carers Project

Know a young person who has a caring role? 

Young carers are people up to 25 years old who provide unpaid care and support to a family member or friend with a disability, a physical or mental illness, a substance dependency, or who is aged. The person they care for may be a parent, sibling, their own child, other relative or friend.

Council recently received funding via the Supporting Carers Locally Grant through the Victorian State Government. Funds will be used to support Banyule’s young carers over the next 12 months.

Council will run a number of social experiences and workshops over the year. We invite young carers to tell us what they would like the project to look like and to stay informed. Please encourage any young carers you know to complete this short survey to tell us what they'd like to see happen and to sign up for regular emails.

All respondents go in the draw for a $30 Hoyts voucher.
