The Young Carers Program offers a variety of weekly programs, drop-in nights and special events for carers 18 and under. Young people will be given the opportunity to meet new friends and gain practical and social skills. Through programs, young carers build resilience and self esteem, and most importantly, are given time for “kids to be kids.” Programs include sports, group activities, expressive arts, video games, fieldtrips, homework assistance and more. Here are a few examples of our programs:
Come join other young carers and have fun! Get some help with homework, play a game, challenge yourself in a Wii tournament, create a masterpiece at arts and crafts, or catch up with friends – It's your choice!
