There are many organisations in WA who provide respite for young carers and their families. This may mean in-home respite such as meals and cleaning services, or an afternoon, overnight, or weekend stay at a group care home for the person you care for.
Carers WA runs a couple of programs for young carers. These are social outings and camps which allow you to meet and chat with other young carers like yourself and to take time out from your caring role. To find out more information, contact the Carers WA Young Carer team on 1300 CARERS (1300 227 377), view more contact information or fill out our contact form.
You can also contact your local Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre on 1800 052 222 and they will put you in touch with respite services in your area of WA.
