Carers WA recently launched our own YouTube channel. Young Carers WA has two YouTube videos on the channel which talk about the Young Carers WA program and young carers. There are also lots of videos of carer’s personal stories and Carers WA events.

In ‘Young Carers WA: Who Are Young Carers’ young carer Lexie, 13, gives an interview about what it’s like to be a young carer for her older sister, Allara. This video and the ‘Young Carers WA Program’ video were filmed by not-for-profit organisation, WASTV. In ‘The Young Carers WA Program’, viewers can see what it’s like to attend young carer events, workshops and camps.

WASTV will be shooting another video at the Adventure World reunion event for young carers aged 13 to 17 who attended the Telethon Wild SouthWest Camp in April 2016. This video will contain footage of the day, as well as informal interviews with young carers.

The YouTube URL is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-33JAZ_UrEEHY6fni1PYVA/videos however you can also find our channel by typing ‘Carers WA’ into the YouTube search engine. Show your support and be the first to see new videos by subscribing!
