Last year we partnered with Little Dreamers to commission 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
A summary of the key findings and recommendations can be found in the document below:
