Young Carers in Australia

Young Carer Research Results

Last year, with Little Dreamers we commissioned Griffith University to complete research about young carers in Australia. The results were shared at our annual Carer Forum in October 2021.

The project explored:

caring roles of Young Carers
health and wellbeing, psycho-social disability and risk-taking behaviours of Young Carers
implications of caring responsibilities for educational and employment outcomes of Young Carers, and
support, barriers to support, and further support needs for Young Carers
